A year ago, I never imagined starting Yorkseed. It all began during a boring three-hour train ride with just an Excel sheet for company. This summer, I am excited to host our first Venture Summit in both New York City and Toronto with StartupFuel. If you'd like to get involved, sponsor us, spread the words, and support us on our early journey! ❤️

We have an incredible lineup of speakers and are thrilled to present a comprehensive range of topics for all stages of venture fundraising! From early-stage and pre-seed to seed, growth stage, Series B, and private equity, we've got it all covered.

Message from the Yorkseed House ...

Our WhatsApp Global hubs are where I will be strictly sharing special events that are happening around the local city related to Founders + Investors + Tech Executives focus only.

Our WhatsApp Conference Groups are for conferences goers to share invites, arrange meetups and set meetings specifically for Founders + Investors + Tech Executives focus only. We also provide a spreadsheet of non-badge holder master side event list for all conference goers! We believe everyone should have access to all the top notch side events without paying a premium price!

Looking for volunteers to run some of these hubs. Global Hub, Paris, New York City, Austin, Miami, D.C., Los Angeles, Bay Area, Hong Kong, Lisbon, Sydney, Munich, Berlin, Helsinki, London, Rio, Buenos Aires, Toronto, Montreal, Dubai, Global Hub (International). Some people already interested in some of them, though I do need more! If you are from a city that is not on the list and are interested in creating a local hub, please reach out to me!

What does a local hub volunteer / co-organizer do?

  • Run a YorkseedTM event once a month. It must be Founders + Investors + Tech Executives focus. I am open to all sort of events from happy hours to panels, or even demo nights. To make it easier, it can be a co-branded event with another company.

  • Collect mailing list, YorkseedTM database building from all the attendees. Partnership, investor or collaboration opportunities for YS.

  • Feed me any local events you know will be coming up in the local city, and I will include them the newsletter.

The perks of being a local hub volunteer? You are exposed to high-level individuals, and infinite opportunities will come your way!
