What’s more, it’s R U OJ? day at YBF. Every Wednesday at 10:30am the YBF community gathers in the kitchen for good ol' chat over bagels and orange juice about everything and anything. Particularly our mental state as we navigate the difficult startup path. You are invited to join in. If you haven’t guessed it, R U OJ? is a pun on R U OK? day.

PLEASE NOTE : This Open Coworking Day is open to first-time attendees only. If you've participated in a previous Open Coworking Day at YBF Ventures, please chat to YBF staff about membership

About YBF Ventures
YBF is one of the communities that kicked off the whole coworking phenom in Australia way back in 2011 and has always been committed to growing and nurturing Melbourne’s tech ecosystem. Founders of YBF were among the tech/ startup enthusiasts who founded Melbourne Silicon Beach around the same time.

YBF is already home to startups working in fintech, Web 3.0, lawtech, augmented reality, machine learning, artificial intelligence, agtech, big data and more. YBF also serves as the headquarters to some pretty impressive global-reaching companies – Silicon Valley’s Wrike, Berlin's Signavio and the Australian arm of Startupbootcamp are based out of 520 Bourke Street. YBF even has folks working in the space who are in research mode, planning their next big project.

On top of that, YBF has world-class corporate partners and house two government-backed hubs: the YBF Fintech Hub and YBF Mesh (the world’s first Web 3.0 hub); and Australia's first lawtech hub in a partnership with Lander & Rogers.

YBF offers private offices (from single-person to 40-person part floors) and open-plan desks, plus there is lots of community space for more relaxed working and impromptu meetings. For more formal meetings YBF has ten meeting rooms of varying sizes across three floors available to members – all with connected TVs and white boards.

YBF's premium coworking space also has the city’s fastest WiFi (1000/1000 Mbps Symmetrical U/D), private phone booths, bike storage, fully-stocked showers (including shampoo, conditioner, body wash and fresh towels), renowned (almost daily) events and an awesome community.
