YVR Startup’ HUGE Winter Holiday 2018 Celebration
I received the following from Nathan Wong of YVR Startups: Join us for our Winter Holiday 2018 Celebration which will be epic, highly interactive and productive business networking event in a relaxed, non-pressure environment. We had 133 people in Sept, 124 in Aug, 118 in July and 105 in June. If you want an amazing time and great value, this is a must-attend event. Imagine 100-130+ biz and tech prospects for you to meet! Where and when else can you do this? We are determined to make this better than the 'typical networking over beers' event and want everyone to be one step closer to their goals even if you are introverted and are not comfortable in large crowd settings (That's why we have a new unique icebreaker's games later on). The evening will be full of amazing entrepreneurs, business, and smart tech ppl mingling. The past events were so popular that the room exceeded the fire code limit. Come alone or bring a friend to meet some new sharp friendly people. You’re welcome to join us earlier from 5 pm for their Happy Hours' Specials before the actual event starts later. Everyone is welcome! CROWD SOURCING ACTIVITY: Everyone has a need/itch that they can't seem to scratch for their own business. Thus the law of probability states that the answer to your need is somewhere in the room or someone in the room knows someone else who can be a solution/option to it. Likewise you may be the solution or option to someone's need. We believe in thinking outside of the box to help everyone get connected with solutions or options. We've been to those other Meetups where they would throw you in a room, let you be and only the most extroverted person get results while the rest goes home with negative feelings and little/no results. SMALL INVESTMENT: To reserve tickets for this event, then you need to buy them via EventBrite’s link. RSVPing on MeetUp will NOT guarantee you a ticket. LIMITED TICKETS AVAILABLE for the brilliant Early Birds of only $15/person using the link below until Nov. 30th=Fri. then it will be $20/person from Dec. 1st-Dec. 9th and the Procrastinators’ Special is $30/person on Dec. 10th=Mon. All tickets include only Appys & No Alcohol, but it will be offered as an extra option. We will have creative, new icebreakers’ activities to help you meet more people, so please bring your business cards for the door prizes as well. MARKETING OPPORTUNITIES: We are looking to feature local specific, incredible businesses, so here's your chance to get some great exposure of 28,888+ members in the lower mainland. Anyone interested for more info, then contact: [masked] MAKING THE MOST OUT OF THE EVENT: * Smile & bring a Positive Attitude. * Share your Wins/Losses of the month. * If you have any ideas, questions and/or comments for making the events better, then please contact us.
