The previous week was bustling with New York Fintech Week and Paris Blockchain Week activities! Yorkseed collaborated with Capita.IO Yorkseed Expert Session 🚀 Lessons from the Trenches: How to raise in a non-ZIRP era 📉 with Ben Su for a session of invaluable insights into raising startup capital in today's challenging market. Ben has successfully raised two US VC-led rounds amidst market downturns while building the SaaS to help founders raise more capital faster and easier.

​With a unique blend of legal, entrepreneurial and software engineering expertise, Capita is helping founders raise more and raise faster by automating transaction processes, compliance, and deal distribution.

Attending Paris Blockchain Week was enriching (did you know the conference was held inside The Louvre Museum😳?); I was able to connect with numerous Yorkseeders from various corners of the globe, putting faces to our messaging exchanges. Excited about expanding our presence in Paris even more!

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. 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!

Sounds exciting for you? Write me at  [email protected] / Jessica Sophia Wong
