Join us for an epic, highly interactive and productive business networking event in a relaxed, non-pressure environment overlooking the beautiful Robson & Bute area.
We are determined to make this more than the 'typical networking over beer' event and want everyone to be one step closer to their startup goals even if you are introverted and are not comfortable in large crowd settings. We've been to these meetups where they throw you in a room and let you be and only the most extroverted get results while the rest go home empty handed. We want to turn that model upside down with our facilitated networking so that everyone can leave with a couple contacts they can follow up with.
The evening will be full of amazing Startupers, entrepreneurs and wantrepreneurs, mingling and icebreakers' activities. There will be an awesome mix of people from all over the lower mainland. The last event was so popular, the room was filled and everyone we asked for feedback told us they got a bunch of business cards to follow up with as a result of the facilitated networking activity.
You're welcome to join us earlier from 5-6pm for their Happy Hours food and drinks' Specials before the actual event starts later. How to find us? We will be at the private room with a beautiful view of Robson St. and/or ask for Nathan from YVR StartUps at the front desk. Everyone is welcome!
Share your ideas or help others to make their ideas a reality. Feel free to share any marketing and growth challenges your startup or business is experiencing and provide support to one another. Why? The Karma God will compensate you for your kindness and wisdom.
CROWD SOURCING ACTIVITY:
Everyone has a need or an itch they can't seem to scratch for their business, whether it is finding a technical cofounder, recruiting an iOS developer, finding a Sales Manager, looking for someone who can help with with SAP or even looking a job. The law of probability states that the answer to your need is somewhere in the room or someone in the room knows someone who can be a solution, likewise you may be the solution to someone's need. At YVR Startups, we believe in thinking outside the box to help everyone get connected with solutions and thats why we are proud to facilitate our monthly crowdsourcing solutions activity.
