MANCHESTER, NH – The newly reorganized Manchester Young Professionals Network (MYPN) launched with a big, boisterous celebration on the evening of November 29 at Oracle Dyn. This year’s MYPN Startup Challenge awarded $49,500 in cash and in-kind services to SkinGreat, LLC.

If you are a young professional ages 21-39 “ish,” consider getting involved through one of MYPN’s three committees:

  • Programs
  • Marketing and Partnerships
  • Community Engagement

After a year of strategic planning and creativity from the MYPN Advisory Council and committee volunteers, MYPN unveiled the new mission and vision, membership, and event opportunities. After 14 successful years as a volunteer-run organization, MYPN merged with the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce (GMCC) in 2017 and both organizations have been working on this new strategic plan since then.

The Manchester Young Professionals Network (MYPN) aims to create business and social opportunities, support professional development and welcome new and existing young professionals to the Manchester, NH community.  MYPN was New Hampshire’s first young professionals’ networking organization, established in 2004.

MYPN supports nearly 4,000 young professionals as they expand their contact base, develop professional skills, promote themselves and their business and gain access to community leaders in relaxed settings. Providing young professionals who live and/or work in the Manchester area with opportunities to network with with other talented and driven individuals is an important goal of our organization.

Events and programs take place on a monthly, sometimes weekly basis. Our networking events are hosted at various Manchester venues and we  encourage young professionals to build their contacts, swap ideas and, most importantly, have fun. It is our hope to educate and offer unique opportunities that appeal to young professionals in our beautiful Queen City.
