We Have Exciting News!

 

 

Hello BYP Members,

 

We have some really exciting news about the future of BYP Network. We have been accepted into the final stage interviews of a very prestigious Silicon Valley (San Francisco, USA) business programme. This opportunity is a once in a lifetime chance to really accelerate our growth and provide opportunities to all black professionals around the world. On top of that, we will get the training needed to make BYP the best platform to provide you access to other black professionals, black businesses, black niche networks and the best jobs.

 

One of our markers of success is how many people refer BYP Network to their family and friends or colleagues. This is why we really need your help. We want to go in to our interview and show them how supportive our community is and how much they are rooting for our success.

 

All you have to do is click here: https://byp-network.lpages.co/join/ and sign up to receive a referral link. We even have prizes:

 

ONE referral: A Super Early Bird Ticket to our App Launch 

THREE referrals: A Free Ticket to our App Launch

FIVE referrals: Exclusive access to £300 worth of BYP Conference Content (5+ hours) 

THE MOST referrals: £250 AMAZON VOUCHER 

 

There is a leaderboard so you'll know exactly where you sit! 

 

Thank you so much for all your help so far. We are excited about the next phase of BYP Network, and we really can't do it without you.
