At 4YFN, our policy is ‘startups first.’ Startups are our raison d’être. Our mission and our purpose is to build the startup ecosystem for a better future. We rejoice in the entrepreneurial spirit and believe the youth and vibrancy of startup culture has the power to change the world. Helping startups to succeed is at the heart of everything we do. Everything we do, we do for startups. Success for us is the growth of the startups we work with. We exist to help them realise the aspirations for their companies four years from now.
We lived the startup experience ourselves as a small new event that embarked upon an epic journey to become a global platform for entrepreneurs. Since then, we have been a part of the journey to success for thousands of startups, many of which are now on the precipice of greatness. We love startups. We aim to inspire startups, to connect them to game-changers and be the catalyst of their success.
How do we do it?
- We engage with investors to create funding opportunities for startups
- We involve corporations to generate chances for corporate venturing, acquisition and new business deals
- We invite the media to bring startups to new audiences and expand their reach beyond our events
- We host communities to network startups with their own ecosystems and to meet new ones
- We always work with startups as suppliers where possible
