Subject: [Lean-Startup-Melbourne] Follow up after last nights pitches


Hi all,

Thanks to those who came along to see the pitches last night.  It was a lot of fun, and I hope you learnt a few things and met some interesting people.  As promised, here are some of the key links from last night.


General Assembly

This is a fantastic way to "become your own technical founder" if you don't yet have the chops.

Web Development Immersive Course

  • 12 weeks full time from 9am to 5.30pm
  • Learn front-end and back end web development- HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, Ruby and Ruby on rails
  • Be your own technical co-founder and avoid using a web shop or expensive incubator
  • Optional 3 month paid apprentice program after the course with top Sydney startups + free continued Alumni learning
  • At the end of the course students will be able to build their own websites from scratch.
  • Learn by doing approach- exercises, real world projects and assessments
  • 2 highly experienced programmers teaching the class
  • They will pay for your flights from Melbourne to Sydney and back!



Bluechilli are a fantastic Sydney company who are keen to partner with startup founders on the technology build.

So if you have a great idea but no tech founder, hit em up! You can check them out online at Bluechilli.


Startup Leadership Program

SLP is a selective, world-class training program for entrepreneurs who want to become top startup CEOs. Melbourne SLP Fellows will build a life-long network with a group of outstanding founders, and connect with a growing community of business partners, experts, advisors and investors.
