Christmas Parties + PushStart Mentor Live! + Startmate Applications

Hi All

Another great Sydney Tech Startup Meetup this morning.

There are a couple of things I spoke to a few of you about that I'd like to share with the whole group.



Last year we joined up with our good friends at Silicon Beach Drinks to host the Sydney Tech Startup Community Drinks (and even broke a world record in the process).

It worked really well because a) many of us go to both meetups and b) Christmas drinks on a Friday night are always much better than Christmas Drinks on a Thursday morning...

I think we'll try to do the same thing again this year so if you're keen to help with the organising (and I hope at least a few of you are) can you drop me a note (just reply to this email). Shouldn't be too much work and hopefully with a few hands helping out we can do something awesome again.



Mentor Live! is back!

Come and meet some of the PushStart mentors and book yourself in for 1-on-1 sessions (i.e. 1 startup team per mentor), lasting 15 minutes each, with mentors of your choosing.

This time around the mentor group includes startup founders who have exited, founders of growth stage startups, Investors (Angel and VC), senior management from global technology companies and more.

Places are limited so be quick if you're keen to come along.



Sydney-base startup accelerator StartMate have done a fantastic job of helping startups in their program over the past 2 years and applications for the 2013 class are closing this Sunday. Find out more about the program and how to apply here



Bonus bit of news!

Are you an Australian start-up with global ambitions?

Do you want to develop your entrepreneurial skill set, improve your pitching, build global networks and accelerate the growth of your business?

If so, then the 2013 Advance Innovation Program may be for you!

Applications are now open and close to 5.00pm on the 10th of December 2012.

The top 40 companies will be selected to pitch at events in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in February 12th – 14th 2103. Our panel of experts will then select 25 companies to participate in the Program.
