Meet this Year's YxYY Partners

This year’s YxYY partners have gone above and beyond, gifting us with their creativity and time, as well as many experiential goodies for you this year.  

Some are previous attendees, others are new to our unique band of YesAndians.  When you see them next week, please welcome them and say a big thanks for stepping up and helping all of us co-create the Yes together!

At YxYY partners are people first and brands second.   They don’t simply slap their logos on swag - they are full participants who generate amazing activities central to the Yes& experience.  Each partner brings their own unique personality and team to the event.  So, each year we ask each partner a few questions, to help you get to know them.

"Help Me, Help You"!

Fellow Yaysayers, "Help Me, Help You"!

We know you love cool swag, free food and drinks! Each year, we reach out to a few partner companies who grok what YxYY is all about to help us bring the Yes! Our partners believe the world needs more space for creativity, inspiration and innovation.

We know we have amazing folks working in cool companies, including many super smart marketing, event, bizdev and developer relations folks. We welcome your creative ideas and connections! The sooner we find the right partners, the more creative we can be designing a weekend full of YES. Keep in mind we are a relatively small event so it is all about the right contacts in the right group.

THE ASK:

  • Who do you think would make the perfect YxYY partner? Do you have a contact there, and can you connect us?
  • What about your company? We have learned that the best partners are often companies that have Yaysayers in their midst. You all do the best job of advocating for the awesomeness that is YxYY!
  • Do you know anyone at the following companies? We think they could be a great fit if we can find the right contact. [GoPro, FitBiy, AirBnB, Misfit, Pivotal, Slack, Intel, Amazon, Google, Etsy, Pinterest]

As events go we are ridiculously high value for the cost of participation. Our top level sponsorship is priced at the entry point for your typical business conference. We have both in-kind and cash sponsors; but for now our priority is cash sponsors since it lets us create unique experiences. Though we absolutely welcome any connection that wants to add to the Yes!

Send all connections and intros to me at partners@yxyy.us or if you prefer have them fill in our contact form on the site!

The new Partner section of the website is a great reference, specifically the Partner FAQ, which can be helpful to explain how YxYY partnership is about co-creation, not plastering logos everywhere.

How to Say Yes

Comment

How to Say Yes

We set out last year with a simple theory - if you bring intelligent, engaged people together in the right space, great things would happen, even in the absence of a conference structure. We had no idea what this experiment would bring us, and certainly did not anticipate it taking off in the way it has, nor did we know how impressively YxYYers would elaborate on our original theory.

Since last year's YxYY, we've been thinking on what made the culture last year work, as well as how to bring along folks who are joining us for the first time.

So, how does one participate in YxYY?
