That’s right YHP is hosting a networking event in London on the 23rd November 2010 between 6:30 PM - 10:00 PM (GMT)
The YHP Connect is a monthly meet up where entrepreneurs, investors, talents can both come together under one roof to chill, relax and connect.
YHP Connect gives entrepreneurs and talents a place to network/connect with each other in a spontaneous way, Good music, Classy Location, and an opportunity to listen to top entrepreneurs, investors, talent give tips & advice about their journey.
A place where you can invite a business partner and associate to meet up with you to have a drink and talk business.
While sending emails, texts, tweets, skype are all quick and effective way to communicate and network, nothing still beats the physical connection between people. Word of mouth is still the most powerful advertising tool.
As the event keeps expanding, we hope to invite key investors, so you never know, you might get your opportunity.
This is a community where we could all help each other, in collaboration, feedback, advice and funding.
