Startups' Facilitated Business Networking
Limited Capacity seats available

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 had 118 people attended physically in July and 105 people attended in June, which was cross promoted by 5+ other groups. If you want amazing great value, then check out this event, look at the past pictures and/or ask the past attendees. We are determined to make this better than the 'typical boring networking over beers' event and want everyone to be closer to their goals even if you are introverted and are not comfortable in large crowd settings. We've been to those meetups where they throw you in a room and let you be, so only the most extroverted get results while the rest go home empty handed. We want to turn that model upside down with our unique activities, so that everyone can leave with more better quality contacts to follow up with.

CROWD SOURCING ACTIVITY: Everyone has a need or an itch they can't seem to scratch on their own for their business, so the law of probability is very good to solve your needs, wants or problems because someone in the room can help you directly or indirectly by knowing someone else who can be a solution/option, likewise you may be the solution/choice to someone's need. At YVR Startups, we believe in thinking outside of the box to help everyone get connected with solutions/options.
