I'm very happy to announce something really awesome, especially for all entrepreneurs younger than 30 years.
I'm getting involved in YEhangout, a network only for young entrepreneurs. It was created by Josh Taylor, a social entrepreneur from the UK.
Josh uses public challenges to call attention to existing problems in our world. Right now he is challenged by Sir Richard Branson to build a submersible that reaches the ground of the Atlantic in 8,500m depth.
What Is YEhangout?
The reason Josh founded YEhangout is quite simple. In his projects he faces several challenges and he built a huge network to overcome those.
In one of his past projects he met Trudy Thompson, who runs the business incubator and collaboration hub Bricks and Bread. Together they're mentoring entrepreneurs and helping them with their businesses.
Josh created YEhangout to bring young entrepreneurs together and to get into a mentoring relationship with them. Knowing from his own experience how powerful mentoring can be, YEhangout is the way to have young entrepreneurs benefit from being mentored.
“Training often gives people solutions to problems already solved. Collaboration addresses challenges no one has overcome before.” - Marcia Conner
He launches free hangouts every Wednesday at 6pm BST. Every entrepreneur in the free directory of YEhangout can join those hangouts and chat with other entrepreneurs about daily challenges, productivity hacks, and more.
You'll not only get invites to the weekly hangouts If you join this directory, but also become a member of a growing list of entrepreneurs willing to cooperate and to help each other. Are you looking for a special business partner? You're chances are high that you can find him in the directory. The more people we get, the more helpful the directory becomes.
What's In It For You?
The vision of YEhangout is to create a platform for young entrepreneurs, where they can find help for any problem they have to face while building and running their business.
Together with a huge network of contacts, friends, and specialists, Josh and I will provide information on the most important topics for young entrepreneurs. YEhangout not only features the free weekly hangouts where you can discuss directly with Josh and me.
"Collaboration is no longer painful - or precious." - Vince Clarke
It also includes a blog which we'll have up and running from tomorrow on. On this blog we'll post relevant and helpful information for entrepreneurs, and interviews with experts in entrepreneurship, running a business, marketing - in short, interviews with awesome business people!
Our mission is to help entrepreneurs grow their businesses. We know, that collaboration is the best way to build a reliable and successful business and skip the mistakes others are making.
Our experience, our network, and the hangouts with likeminded entreprenuers will give you lots of useful advice for your business. Josh and I are focussing on really taking action. We won't provide any help that isn't actionable but instead we'll hold you accountable and help you conquer your challenges.
How Can You Join YEhangout?
At first I'd like to reconfirm, that submitting your listing to the directory and taking part in the weekly hangouts is absolutely free for you!
You can join by adding your personal listing to our directory. After that you will get a confirmation email and will then recieve weekly invitations to our hangout.
If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment beneath this post, or contact Josh and me directly via Twitter.
See you in the next hangout!
To your success,
