What we're about

🎉 F.I.E.S.T.A. 🎉 Founders, Investors, Entrepreneurs, Startups, Techies, and Austin Newcomers aims to connect, support, and inspire early-stage startup founders and those new to Austin, TX. While all entrepreneurs (and aspiring entrepreneurs) are welcome to join, this group will focus on helping early-stage startup founders. If you are new to Austin or a local Austinite, simply looking to Network or make new friends, you are in the right place.

We meet on the third Tuesday from 5:30-8:00 PM monthly at the Capital Factory located in Omni Hotel on the bottom floor. Wherever you are on your entrepreneurial journey, come prepared to share your elevator pitch, any wins or needs, plus be willing to help others.

We look forward to meeting you and hearing about your founder's journey!
