It’s an incredibly exciting day here for us at Yena HQ, as we announce our brand new partners to continue help power our support for the next generation of startups and deliver on our goal to provide high quality business support, instantly, to anyone, anywhere.
Amongst the our amazing new friends & partners are the business funder Ultimate Finance, international law firm Womble Bond Dickinson, Diageo-backed drinks investors Distill Ventures, app & software development company Rocketmakers and accounting firm FD Works. Each of them will have a sector exclusive relationship with Yena over the next year to help support and grow our community through educational content and mentoring as well as sponsorship of our UK-based and now international meetups.
Our community, which we affectionately refer to as ‘Ambitious Rebels’, has gone from strength to strength since we kicked-off in 2013. Starting out as just six people in a bar, our Rebel Meetups have since grown to connect more than 3,500 people a year with a global reach spanning all the way to Melbourne. Aimed at under 35s, the free events allow the next generation to meet like-minded peers in a non-intimidating environment.
Alongside this community, our membership platform offers entrepreneurs ‘acceleration as a service’ which gives you access to a package of benefits, including savings on best-in-class tools, educational content from experts in their field and a private online community of other members, designed to make starting and growing a business faster, cheaper and more rewarding to do – via an accessible pricing model from just £9/mo.
We are incredibly excited to have such amazing brands on board to help support our journey to provide high quality business support to everyone, everywhere. It’s been really important for us to take the time to find the right brands to partner with and ensure they truly understand us, our mission and the needs of our community. In return, we hope to help them build better businesses by enabling them to access the talent of the future.
