Our Mission

Creating environments for young professionals to network and grow.

We deliver fun and interactive social events to develop relationships and provide engaging workshops, connections, and opportunities to foster personal and professional development. 

2017: We started

Our Journey

MYPN was started by two guys at a pub asking the question, “How do we meet more young people”. They both had their own businesses, and there were no organisations around which connected young people to grow their networks. This question was asked in 2015 and with the help of Destination Manawatu, MYPN was formed and launched that year. We became an incorporated society and membership body in 2017 and have been evolving ever since.
