Young Professionals Network

About the Estero Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Network (YPN)


esterochamberypnSupported and encouraged by The Estero Chamber of Commerce, the YPN was started by a small group of young professionals looking for opportunities to exchange ideas, build professional networks, and to share common interests in a relaxed environment.

The YPN hopes to develop young people professionally, personally and socially to encourage more and more young people to stay and to be warmly welcomed to the beautiful Southwest Florida area.

Estero YPN hopes to provide a place for like-minded young people with energy and enthusiasm to connect, share ideas and develop their own skills.

The aim is to be inclusive and while we are nominally targeting ages 21 to 35 membership is open to all whether working in a corporate function, a small business owner, vocational employment or students soon to graduate.

Our Mission
Our mission is to attract engage, develop and retain emerging leaders who live and work in the greater Estero area.

The YPN holds a monthly social where members will get to network with one another. Some event will be social, some educational, and other will be community focused. While most of the event will be free other may have a registration fee, which will be noted when the event is posted.
