Who We Are

The YONY/Rivertowns Creative Meetup is dedicated to accelerating an emerging creative and tech business corridor along the Hudson River in Westchester County that is transforming our former industrial waterfronts and downtowns into economic generators once again. Our mission is to inspire with the insight of creative leaders, to establish connections with people and resources to help our members flourish, and to promote the clustering of tech and other creative industries in Downtown Yonkers and communities along the Hudson.

This Meetup is presented by YONY Initiative, Inc., Sarah Lawrence College and The City of Yonkers.

Who Should Join?

Our goal is to build community and expand opportunity by hosting the Lower Hudson Valley’s ultimate networking event for those who are passionate about tech, biotech, green tech, new media, social marketing, digital design, e-publishing, start-ups, finance, economic development, urban planning, architecture, public policy, advocacy, writing, the commercial and fine arts, and the full array of knowledge industries that are being transformed by technological innovation.

Our Monthly Event

We will meet each month at the Yonkers Riverfront Library, a growing cultural and social hub in the region.  The Meetup will include a catered networking reception followed by a talk with a prominent creative leader, concluding with an audience Q&A session.  The networking will continue at an after-party at a nearby local restaurant.
