We maximize the success of technology startups
YBF was born in Melbourne in 2011, inside an 1850s heritage-listed space, formerly known as the York Butter Factory – that’s where YBF gets its name. And that logo of ours, it’s not a dark-hued pickle, an old-school Pac-Man ghost or a boardroom table, it’s a door. It’s the door from that very first space, the door that hundreds of technology startups, corporates and investors with bold and global ambitions have walked through over the years.
YBF's curated innovation hub attracts Australia's high-potential early-stage technology businesses in the areas of fintech, healthtech, big data and analytics, cloud and SaaS, and adtech to connect, learn and collaborate with YBF's corporate partners (Aon, ANZ Bank, Qantas, Salesforce, Ernst & Young, IBM, New Zealand Trade & Enterprise, and Dentsu-Aegis Network) and industry partners (Melbourne University, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, RMIT, and Zendesk).
