The Young People in Business is a group of like-minded people under 40 (or those who feel it!) looking to grow their networks and gain meaningful skills and experience to accelerate their careers.

We have a number of events that we run every month, volunteer opportunities, and a Top 40 program – with a twist – have a look, there’s something for everyone!


Super Casual Coffee Social

On the first Wednesday of every month we meet up at a local coffee shop for exactly that – a super casual coffee social. No tickets, no pre-registration, no check-in. Come hangout and grab a coffee before you head into work for the day. Stay for 15 minutes or stay for an hour, totally your call.

The Mixer

Not much of a morning person? Trade your coffee for a brew or glass of wine and come join us at a Mixer! Every other month or so we gather at some of Kelowna’s finest establishments to make new friends and life-long connections. These events sell out quick, so make sure to grab your ticket right away!

Mentorship Lunches

Our community is full of some incredible leaders; this is your chance to learn from them. Sit down with us for lunch as we spotlight one of Kelowna’s successful business leaders, hearing all about how they got where they are today and the challenges they've overcome. We intentionally only sell about 30 seats for each of these events to leave plenty of space for questions, so don’t be shy.

Top 40

Everyone likes a little recognition, and the folks here are so great that they deserve it! Watch our weekly features and celebrate the great things being done by the great people who make up our community.

We have both an Under 40 and an Over 40 program that alternate every year to highlight our incredible young professionals, as well as those more experienced leaders who may play more of a mentor or role-model role in our community.
