About this event

Remember when we were all virtual and it all sucked? No tech events, no in-person networking, no happy hours, no parties.

Edwina Yeo saw an opportunity in those dark pandemic days and created Supermomos, an organization dedicated to connecting professional communities in technology, business, and finance. With Supermomos, she helps these communities tackle some of their toughest challenges, like:

  • Nailing product-market fit
  • Finding their first paying customers
  • Increasing mindshare and positive brand awareness

And she started doing it in a very unusual way that led to hockeystick growth in users, partners, and sponsors.

Join us on Wednesday, August 2 to meet Edwina and learn how she built a community out of nothing -- and how you can galvanize a motivated community around your own company or venture.

Tickets for this event are $10 and include food and drinks (yes, the boozy kind), as well as exclusive access to this VC turned entrepreneur who is dedicated to bringing people together in real life to foster meaningful connections and knowledge exchange, all while facilitating the participation of female and other underrepresented minority groups.

We'll be meeting LIVE AND IN-PERSON at The Yard, a coworking space at the intersection of innovation, creativity, design, & play -- with locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Philly, and DC -- with a variety of shared and private workspace options. If you are interested in learning more or scheduling a visit, you can do so here.
