Monthly Networking Breakfast

There are so many reasons to NOT get up early in the morning, but in a fast paced online dominated society, social media can’t replace the simple value of shaking hands, sharing personal stories and forming real relationships. Many of life’s pleasures come from human interaction and YPC provides you that opportunity with an informal, yet impactful start to your day!

YPC hosts monthly breakfasts on the first Thursday of every month. This month we will be at the DIRTT showroom (325 N Wells St.).  The DIRTT showroom is an open space that offers views of the city, a breakfast bar for employees and guests as well as examples of its innovative prefabricated interior construction solutions all in a collaborative atmosphere.

The breakfasts are only $10 (you can hardly get a half-caf latte and muffin for that!). Included is an assortment of breakfast options, coffee, juice and an hour of networking with other attendees. Space is limited to the first 50 and you must register in advance (below), so set those alarms and join us!
