After a successful event last night we have decided to take a break in December. It's the time of year when all of our diaries fill up with social events and on top of our busy business schedules we feel that networking events are likely to be the first casualties of the seasonal calendar cull.
As a bit of an experiment and to keep things ticking along we have enabled the forum area of this site so that discussions can continue. You can check it out by clicking on 'Discussions' above.
Thanks to all who attended last night. It was great to see yet more new faces. And thanks once again to the awesome Eden Ventures for picking up our biggest bar bill yet.
South West Founders is a monthly meet-up for people based in the South-West who have been, are, or want to be tech start-up founders. We aim to connect local entrepreneurs with co-founders and other like-minded people as well as tech investors to create an informal support network.
Our focus is on scalable and disruptive businesses. We welcome entrepreneurs and tech investors with open arms, but discourage freelancers, consultants, lawyers and other service providers unless they have a genuine interest in founding or mentoring start-up businesses. We have a strict 'no selling' rule at our events.
The format of the meet-ups is very casual. Turn up, sign in and get a name badge which will tell everybody who you are and what you've come for. The badge also has one other important purpose - it will get you free drinks at the bar courtesy of our sponsors. Please check out their links on our page.
