YYC founder's forum is a tight-knit group of entrepreneurs who come together to share  knowledge in an effort to improve each other’s businesses. Each month for a 2 hour period, we analyze and discuss a host of topics related to startups, business, and life as a founder. The first hour is informal over lunch and the second hour is focused on an agenda set by the group.

We are recruiting new members to join our existing group and accepting applications from interested participants. You must be working full-time on your business, and members are expected to attend every meeting in-person or by virtual meeting. Confidentiality and integrity are of the utmost importance.
