Story of Yorkseed

Yorkseed / A global hub for founders and investors created by Jessica Sophia Wong

It's me, Jessica! I'm the girl who created the viral list of all the SXSW 2023 unofficial events that could be attended without a badge in Austin. I created this master list during my 3-hour train ride from NYC to DC out of boredom, and it became a huge hit.Based on my success, I hosted an exclusive high-profile Founders x Investors SXSW Mixer with just one hour of planning, which sold out quickly, and I had to turn people away. Encouraged by this, I decided to start this company, Yorkseed, based on the proof of concept from last year's Earth Day Charity Brunch and the Yorkseed exclusive WhatsApp community that I built since I returned to NYC from SXSW.If you are a founder, investor, or work within the innovation sectors, you are invited to join our exclusive Yorkseed WhatsApp Hubs! I created various hubs for conferences that I am interested in and for cities that have a significant startup presence. Please send me a private message if you would like to be added to the hubs, or if you have any suggestions for other hubs you would like me to start, please let me know! I will take your suggestions into consideration.
