What we're about

Starting a business can be difficult, and scaling even more of a task. Navigating the business, marketing, funding and investment just to get started is hard enough, and by the time your business is underway finding the resources to then scale can become overwhelming.

Let's build a community that helps one another.

Events and Meetups will focus around raising investment, systemising your business so you can grow and marketing your product.
