POSTPONED - EnviroTech Alliance - First Meetup
Time for climate action to move at startup speed!
Australian startups are in a unique position to get climate solutions out there fast. We have the brains, the terrains and - let's face it - one of the hottest dates with destiny on the planet! 🌏 🔥
The EnviroTech Alliance (ETA) is an open meetup which brings together anyone who wants to support a flourishing EnviroTech sector in Australia.
We are a growing group of hundreds of startup founders, professionals and advocates creating solutions for the environment so we can:
- build community 👩🏻🤝👨🏽,
- map and measure the impact of our work on jobs and the economy 💰 and
- present a unified front to governments and investors so we can advocate for greater support 💪 🤝.
Together we will exchange ideas, hacks and survival techniques and provide a supportive network and promotional platform for all participants. ETA 2030 - let's go!
Led by TechSydney, The Envirotech Alliance includes: SparkClub (Energytech), Fishburners (Australia's largest startup community), Girl Geek Academy (a global movement for women in STEM) and Launch Group (leading startup and impact agency) with promotional support from SparkFestival and Hatch Taronga Accelerator Program.
Our first meetup is an open invite for everyone working in the EnviroTech space to connect, share and learn.
Fishburners' Event Space - Level 2/11 York St, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia

6:15pm - Breakaways. Meet the likeminded colleagues, friends and allies you didn't know you had.
There is no cost to be part of the Alliance, however this event has a modest cover charge to cover food and drinks. NB: If you would like to attend but cannot afford to do so, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you there and supporting the Australian startup community to lead on the environmental crises and solve for the coming generations.
There are many working in the environmental space as change advocates
and to help industry and governments reduce emissions and transition
away from fossil fuel. Our focus is on the 'INVEST' side of the movement
- supporting and promoting those working on scaleable solutions to attract greater
support and resources. We recognise our work must occur in parallel to
these broader efforts.
UPDATE: COVID-19 event policy: This event is a small gathering and precautions have been taken around food and alcohol handling and all other event procedures to maintain a strongly hygiene-focused event setting. We also encourage guests to minimise contact around personal greetings. We also ask that guests do not attend the event if you have been identified in an at-risk category.
