Letter from Chair


It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Young Entrepreneurs Society of Victoria, YES Victoria! As Founder and Chair of The Young Entrepreneurs Society of Victoria, I have enjoyed watching countless businesses grow and flourish since day one. Many of my closest relationships stem from my involvement and community work through YES Victoria. I encourage anyone looking to achieve the next level in their business here in Greater Victoria to come out and see for yourself what can happen when you say yes to YES!

Whether you are under 20 or over 50, our organization is meant to be the common place for all Entrepreneurs, Professionals and those looking to connect with business owners. Whether you are just starting out in business or want to deepen your connection to the local business community, If you are looking to expand your connections, get new ideas or simply meet other like-minded and Entrepreneurial Spirited individuals, then you have found the perfect home in YES.

At YES, we look forward to supporting you and helping you access the resources that you need to take your business to the next level in the most cost-effective way possible.

YES Victoria Members are experts in their varied industries-- have a look at our Member Directory to find out more-- who come together with the common goal to become successful in business while making our community a better place.

We achieve this through our free bi-weekly business mixers, where our members and guests are welcome to attend and connect in locations from Downtown Victoria to Downtown Langford. Our mixers include open networking time and a diverse roster of speakers, so it’s a great opportunity to meet other business owners while also learning from experts.

We also run three annual Charity Fundraisers designed and coordinated by the YES Victoria Board. Between these three charity events-- Fashion for a Cure, Quay Classic, and Evening to Inspire-- we look to connect with virtually every area and demographic of Greater Victoria.

I hope that you will take the time to look into all of the work that we are doing as an organization to raise money and boost awareness of many local worthwhile community projects and charities. A common belief of our members and community sponsors is that it is important to give back, help make our local community better, and ensure that our most vulnerable neighbours are taken care of!!!

I look forward to personally introducing you to our wonderful network of Community Conscious Entrepreneurs in Victoria. The power of connections is one of the most important business resources out there, so I invite you to join us and harness the power of saying YES to your success!
