Our goal is to make the hardest thing you’ve ever done easier! 

We do this through our different memberships which provide the facilities, resources, learning and development, mentoring, and connections that you need for your idea to come to life and flourish. We also open our doors and host some of the largest, regular events in the Australian startup ecosystem, including our bi-weekly lunch & learn workshops, and Shark Tank-style, Friday night pitches.

To make sure we have the best environment in support of this, in cases where someone is detracting from this goal they may be asked to leave for excessive drinking, antisocial behaviour, speaking during the pitches or disengagement with the purpose of the night. If any issues arise that make you feel uncomfortable please don’t hesitate to come and speak to one of the team.

We hope that by this everyone will enjoy an even more energetic and exciting event, continuing to grow in numbers as we focus all our considerable resources on supporting the skills and passions of us all in the start up industry.
