YB Connected hosted an amazing networking soiree at the Philadelphia Union League in March. The event supported the Germination Project, which is an organization that has “a mission to create a self-sustaining, and perpetuating ecosystem for Philadelphia’s next generation of leadership.”

Utilizing the region’s current leaders, the Germination Project seeks to catalyze and energize the crème de la crème of ambitious young men and women. This group is brought together by the following : their talent, drive and commitment to putting their gifts into service for the benefit of our city.

Philadelphia’s best and brightest are invited, regardless of circumstance, into a committed and empowered fellowship–bestowing a lifetime’s worth of opportunities under one condition, the member’s promise  to pay those opportunities forward.
