Once again, SXSW has proven to be a tremendous success! Our exclusive Yorkseed SXSW Austin group chat has skyrocketed in popularity, becoming the largest community with over 700 active members! We were doing mini activations left and right, and Yorkseed proudly partnered with VNTR Capital for the Investors Roundtable event at SXSW in Austin. I had the honor of hosting and moderating this event a week ago on Monday, March 11th. The event brought together a diverse group of active VC investors, family offices, business angels, and crypto investors during SXSW!

Since March of last year, I've yearned to host a significant house activation. However, after being captivated by the enticing side events on this year's SXSW schedule, I've opted to organize a mini-event series instead. We extended invitations to others to co-host and integrate their brand with ours. Dubbed YORKSEED PASSPORT SERIES, the event series harmonizes perfectly with Yorkseed's global vision. Excitingly, we've already hosted 5 successful events within our passport series!

Yorkseed is spearheaded by a solo female entrepreneur, and while we began modestly, our community wouldn't thrive without the love and support from all of you within the ecosystem.

A heartfelt thank you to our logo sponsors for SXSW!

Our sponsorship package is now FINALLY available! Kindly complete the form, and I'll send you a selection of diverse packages to choose from. I am currently on the lookout for sponsors and partners for SXSW Austin! Yorkseed is arranging a series of smaller events centered around a unique theme focused on founders and investors. If anyone would like to collaborate / sponsor with Yorkseed, please reach out to me via email!  [email protected]

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. 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
