Join our SXSW Austin Hub

Yorkseed is excited to announce our participation in SXSW Austin from March 8th to March 16th. We are bringing back our renowned master side event viral spreadsheet, which now includes a dedicated housing section. We understand the high costs associated with finding accommodations in Austin, TX during SXSW, so we have created a platform for conference attendees to collaborate and find affordable housing options. We encourage everyone to make the most of this spreadsheet, and if any companies are interested in advertising within it, please reach out to me via email.

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
