What is hyp?

Also known as the Hunter Young Professionals, hyp is a community for those in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley who want to broaden their professional network.

We create opportunities for Newy’s young guns to get together and break down barriers that may be keeping them from thriving in the business community.
