"I simply love the YSYS community - always helpful, full of inspiring people and opportunities. I've met a vast number of amazing and talented people through YSYS, be it founders building their businesses, fellow investors from marginalised communities or allies who want to drive diversity in the outcome, and others who are generally contributing to driving positive change in the tech and VC ecosystem"

Boris Tane

Founder: Baselime

"I joined YSYS in early 2019, I was just starting off my career in tech and I just moved to London. I have since grown into my career and launched multiple products on the side, and, as a matter of factly, I wouldn't have reached these goals without the support of the YSYS community. From the very first event I attended on career development, to the opportunities with VCs and angel investors, plus the vibrant slack community, the work the YSYS community does is truly outstanding.
