Who We Are

SYPE is a non-profit, membership-based organization of young professionals and entrepreneurs interested in meeting, learning, and connecting with each other.

Our mission is simple – we want to connect young business-minded people and have fun while we do it.

SYPE was established over twenty years ago. We still share the same values and mission as our founders did on day one – to connect young professionals and entrepreneurs in Saskatchewan. With that in mind, we continue to adapt and listen to our members as our business ecosystem, and networking continues to change and evolve.

Our membership base includes:

Young business owners and entrepreneurs

Young employees of small, medium and large businesses, organizations and corporations

Young entrepreneurs and employees with professional designations

Young employees of government and not-for-profit organizations

Testimonials from Our Members

Being a part of SYPE has opened up numerous opportunities, both professionally and socially. It’s great to meet new people and professionals who you can learn from.

I have been a member of SYPE for 6 years, and on the board for 4 years.  During my time on the board, I was an Executive, Vice President, President, and Past President and found each year very rewarding and in different ways. Professionally I have built a network of like-minded professionals where some have become great work connections, and some have become great personal friends.  For a business professional who went through a career change from the trades to an office job, I found SYPE provided me a chance to engage with peers and build my confidence in business circles.

“My membership with SYPE has allowed me to build meaningful relationships with amazing entrepreneurs and professionals in our community that will last throughout my lifetime.  SYPE provides an unbiased engaging platform for young business-minded individuals to meet, share and collaborate on their experiences.  Go SYPE!”
