Aimed at making family life easy, this task based app gets kids motivated, teaches them responsibility and helps them learn important skills for later in life. To make sure we get all the details right, we’re looking for families to trial the app and provide us with feedback."

We are going into startup mode with Silicon Beach TV
The launch will be at the brand new Library @ The Dock in partnership with City of Melbourne.
The main draw card will be "pitch on camera" where three founders get to pitch their idea/startup in front of the live audience and for the upcoming SB TV channel on YouTube & Vimeo. Want to be in the running to be seen by investors here and overseas?
Save the Date : Wednesday July 16th, 6pm for networking and connecting, SB TV Event starts at 7pm.
Apply here before July 2nd to get in to the pitch event.
Our pitch coach, Lauren Rielly will be assessing the applications with the organising team.
A new event page will be created here, and you will be notified. This will be a paid event open only to Silicon Beachers. We are looking at a small admission fee around $10 to cover costs.
Be part of this exciting new project. It's not another boring startup event. There will be music, product demos, cutting edge innovation by Silicon Beachers plus much more!
We are innovating to inspire, educate and support YOU!
This is startup!
You are invited to join The Pollenizer Guild
Last week, Pollenizer launched an extended version of their online community. The Pollenizer Guild is a community of practicing founders, connected with a shared craft in entrepreneurship.
Beyond offering a forum for founders to help each other on their startup journey, Pollenizer offers resources to educate and keep them on track. Most startup entrepreneurs would agree, starting up can be a lonely experience. Not truly understanding the destination, or whether you will get there or not, can feel isolating, so we aim to provide a platform that supports entrepreneurs to stay connected, confident and determined to succeed.
You can join us here.
