Sydney Tech Startup Meetup

Open Coffee / Sydney Tech Startup Meetup is the longest running, and biggest, meetup for tech startups in Sydney!

Running since early 2007 it has been a regular place for the Sydney Tech Startup Community to get together, exchange ideas, connect with like-minded people and work on their startups.

3 things define this meetup:

- It's informal (no nametags, no structure to the event)

- It's on regularly - (Every fortnight. if you haven't heard otherwise, it's on!)

- It's friendly (just come and say "Hi" to anyone there)

So, if you're a part of the startup community, this is your place to come and hang out.

    Damn, I thought it was 8:30PM, lucky I checked again before leaving to the venue. Oh well, I'll be in the next one. Any slides shared?

    Since this is a no name-tags, no structures event, presumably relying on `organic´connections, I'm going to over the step the line so you can find me amongst this 50 something crowd: I'm the really, really good looking one! Like in the picture. Seriously, I'm into crowd-funding, healthcare, biotech. I'm into doers and wannabe doers. That means, I'm into real-world people, i.e., one's prepared to put their own skin in the game and not compelled or deluded to name-drop, go on about their MBAs, PhDs, Honors, or Awards from yet another Center of Excellence, or any other bubbles for that matter .... so you know. If that's your taste call out my name ..... don't be shy now!

I now teach a course that builds skills like courage , leadership and personal responsibility to step into your potential and create what you are really capable of !

    Just crash-landed in Australia from Europe. Sydney relocation. Looking to hook-up with startup enthusiasts to get the lowdown on the local conditions and a few pointers. Willing to share experiences of the European landscape

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
