Corporate and Tech Partners

YBF is proud to be partnered with some of the most innovative companies in the world to help accelerate the growth of YBF’s startup community.

Working At YBF

We’re far beyond being a co-working space, so far that we refuse to call ourselves that. YBF is an open innovation hub for Australia’s top technology companies and companies that underpin innovation.

DON’T WORK ISOLATED, STAY CONNECTED

Entrepreneurship can be a tough, lonely and difficult journey. YBF gets it. We were built by entrepreneurs. Behind the technology and strategy, there are founders and team members working as hard as they can to make an impact. Doing something different and bold sometimes means that the journey can be a lonely and difficult one.

 

YBF realised early on that the missing ingredient to creating a truly vibrant ecosystem was a central point of focus–­–a place where startup founders could share, collaborate and help each other get to success, faster.

WE’RE DEFINITELY NOT JUST ANOTHER CO-WORKING SPACE

Since 2011, we’ve designed and built an ecosystem to maximise the success of a startup. At YBF, startups can meet industry leaders, get direct support from our team of Community Managers, access over $300k worth of tech resources, and tap into our rich networks of investors and partners.

 

There’s a reason some of the most exciting technology startups were started at YBF––from Clover and Lamule to BlueThumb and Foodora. Our team members are an extension of your startup, acting as a point of contact for any help you need around fundraising, scaling or even just to bounce off ideas.

 

With an active community of entrepreneurs, mentors, investors, and corporate partners––over 12,000 people in our ecosystem, and over 250 events per year, we’re the destination point for the most innovative technology startups.
