New stretch target

Further support will enable us to deliver more 1:1 support over the coming months, share more stories from the community and increase the number of free memberships we can pass on to new members.

Who We Are

Yena is a membership organisation for startups, supporting them to start and grow remarkable businesses.

We have a community of around 200 members and a global network of 15000 people who engage with us through our free Rebel Meetups.

The Situation

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, many founders are facing financial and personal challenges and are seeking support to help them deal with the uncertainty.

We want to make this whole experience easier and, with your help, make Yena benefits free for everyone (both new and current standard members). This will enable us to provide much-needed support, a community of peers and signposting for further opportunities for a 2 month period.

Doing this for current members means sacrificing cashflow in our own business and, as a startup ourselves, we can't afford to do this without putting ourselves at risk too.

That's why we're asking for the support of other businesses and individuals who can spare something, to help us provide support to founders, freelancers, startups and their teams, when they need it most.

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
