Next Meetup

September's HUGE, Unique Facilitated Networking Party 3.0!
VBN is pleased to support the following event produced by YVR StartUps. Thank you for making our summer events a great success! I have some incredible news to share! I'm excited to announce that a real proven multi-millionaire, NOT paper or self-proclaimed, will share some of his wisdom with us. Thus it will be Darren Jacklin, so click on the link below to read his bio, credentials and buy a ticket before it gets sold out! 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 124 people attended in August, 118 people attended physically in July and 105 people attended in June, which was cross promoted by 5+ other awesome JV groups. If you want amazing great value, then check out this event, look at the past pictures and/or ask the past attendees about it. Also we will be a host for "Vancouver Startup Week", so there can be an extra 25+ new faces on top of the 120+ guests. Imagine 140-150+ business & tech prospects for you to meet! Where and when else can you do this? 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 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. Get your tickets for only $15 at EventBrite. Prices will go up as we get closer to the event, the Procrastinator's Special is $20 at the door: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/september-huge-facilitated-networking-tickets-49512070937?discount=VBN 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 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 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 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.
