YVR Startups Facilitated Networking - June 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 more than the 'typical networking over beer' event and want everyone to be one step closer to their startup goals even if you are introverted and are not comfortable in large crowd settings. We've been to these meetups where they throw you in a room and let you be and only the most extroverted get results while the rest go home empty handed. We want to turn that model upside down with our facilitated networking so that everyone can leave with a couple contacts they can follow up with. Get your tickets as an early bird here: Prices WILL go up from $10 to $15 the Monday before the event (june 18th) and up once more to $20 at the door. The evening will be full of amazing Startupers, professionals, entrepreneurs and wantrepreneurs, mingling and icebreakers’ activities. There will be an awesome mix of people from all over the lower mainland. The last event was so popular, the room was filled and everyone we asked for feedback told us they got a bunch of business cards to follow up with as a result of the facilitated networking activity. You’re welcome to join us earlier from 5-6pm for their Happy Hours food and drinks’ 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 and 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 for their business, whether it is finding a technical cofounder, recruiting an iOS developer, finding a Sales Manager, looking for someone who can help with with SAP or even looking a job. The law of probability states that the answer to your need is somewhere in the room or someone in the room knows someone who can be a solution, likewise you may be the solution to someone's need. At YVR Startups, we believe in thinking outside the box to help everyone get connected with solutions and thats why we are proud to facilitate our monthly crowdsourcing solutions activity.

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.

Meeting times:

2nd wednesday of each month - Monthly large gatherings
