A Few Words: PerthYP is a progressive and diverse not-for-profit association aimed at connecting and providing opportunities for the millennials of Perth.
PerthYP was Started in January 2012 as a personal project, after a gap was identified in the networking scene in Perth – there was nothing out there which provided regular/free networking opportunities purely for millennials regardless of their industry.
It grew quickly, and by the middle of 2012 a committee had formed, we incorporated as an association and registered as a not-for-profit organisation to make sure we had a solid foundation for the future. We secured sponsorship, made sure our website and social media presence was sufficient, and the whole thing has grown passively.
We have over 2000 members now and have great things planned for the future – we have an open door policy, anyone under 35 regardless of their profession can broaden their network through PerthYP.
