Quick Update from Open Coffee

From: Kim H

Hi All


Just a few quick things to cover off in this update


  • Ordering Coffees at Meetups
  • Why Not Show Off Your Work?
  • Startmate / PushStart / Silicon Beach


Ordering Coffees

I was recently contacted by the owner of the cafe where we meet in the Allianz building. They love having us there but have asked me to remind everyone about the ordering process for our group as last week was a little crazy.

"Because everyone pays for themselves they should go to the dine in end of the counter,order and pay (the end closest to Market Street). All the staff now know the process."

Easy :)



Why Not Show Off Your Work?

I'd like to encourage people to start showing some of the awesome stuff we've built.

So bring your laptop, ipads, iphones, nexus s's or whatever you're building for and let's get to know each other’s work. Awareness of each other’s efforts may find ways of serendipitously helping our community out and I think that's a great thing.



Startmate / PushStart / Silicon Beach

Our Meetup is just one of the parts of the ever-more vibrant local startup scene.

Some other things you may be interested in are below:


  • Applications for Startmate are currently open. If you're interested in finding out more about their accelerator program (they providing funding and mentorship over 3 months) then click HERE.
  • PushStart (disclaimer, I’m one of the founders) is a set of Community-focused, mentor-driven, activities to help Australian startups. If you’re post idea stage (i.e. you’ve actually started working on your startup) then PushStart can help connect you with people who can help you grow your business)
  • Silicon Beach Drinks – Love hanging out with startup people but struggling to make Open Coffee in the morning? Maybe you’re more of a  night person? Silicon Beach drinks might be just what you’re looking for. Check out the details here


2 last bits of business.

  1. A big welcome to all our new members. Glad to have you onboard and hopefully we’ll catch you at a meetup soon
  2. My apologies for not being present at the last few meetups. My wife just had a baby so things are a little hectic. With that in mind, if anyone is keen to help out with the organisation of Open Coffee, drop me an email and we can chat about how easy it is :)
