YVR Startups' Unique Facilitated Networking - July Edition
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 better than the 'typical lame, boring networking over some beers' event and want everyone to be closer to their goals even if you are introverted or not comfortable in large crowd settings. Most of us have been to these meetups where they throw you in a room and let you fend for yourself, so only the most extroverted get results while the rest go home empty handed or feel that it was a waste of time. We want to reverse that model with our unique facilitated networking activities, so everyone can leave with a few good contacts to follow up with. Get your tickets as an Early Bird here at 50% off (Use YVR to get the discount). Prices will go up the Monday before the event to $15 and if you procrastinate more, then Procrastinator's Special is $20 at the door: The evening will be full of amazing Startupers, entrepreneurs and business people mingling and icebreakers’ activities. There will be an awesome mix of people from all over the lower mainland. Our events are popular, fills up and everyone we asks for feedback were happy with their good connections. You’re welcome to join us earlier from 5 pm for their Happy Hours' 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 then 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 on their own for business, whether it is finding a technical co-founder, recruiting an iOS developer, finding a good Sales Manager or even looking for a tech job. The law of probability is very good to solve your needs, wants, problems or challenges because someone in the room and/or someone at the event knows someone else who can be a solution, likewise you may be the solution to someone's need. At YVR Startups, we believe in thinking outside of the box to help everyone get connected with solutions/options and that's why we are proud to facilitate our monthly activities.

What we're about

We invite startup leaders and experts to share their startup story and subject expertise relevant to startups and businesses. We bring value by asking them the hard questions everyone want to know.

We’ve been to many meetups and are tired of hearing people share generic surface level stuff what can be found on blogs and we want the meat and bread wisdom from founders. We focus on sharing stories and practical startup growth tactics that can help you go from 0 to 45K on Instagram in a few months, how to build a powerhouse team, how to get traction or approach reporters and writers, how to start a startup as a non technical and many more.

Vancouver is a growing entrepreneurial hub with many established and prominent upcoming startups. There are startup grants, good support, available capital and quality talents helping many startups scale big. There is no better time to start a startup than today here in Vancouver.

At YVR Startups we believe in the 3 I’s

Inspire- Hear stories from startup mentors and startup peers, be inspired and replicate their successes in your startups.

Inform- Be kept up to date with the latest happenings in the startup scene from new algorithm changes and growth strategies. We invite experts with results who will share with you the meat of growing a startup. No bs.

Involve- Go far and deep with our community. Connect with startup folks at our networking events, meet a co-founder and get started in a startup.

Our presenters include founders and experts in the startup community including finalists at startup competitions, Top 30 under 30 recipients, CMOs, heads of growths, VCs and other successful founders. Get ready to receive great insights on how to grow your startup to the next level.
