What we're about

Can't make it to one of our events? No worries. Check out our virtual membership (https://fishburners.org/virtualmemberships), which provides access to all of our event recordings and slides, as well as our community of 800+ Sydney, Brisbane and virtual members, and a day a month working from the Fishburners space.

Who are we?

Fishburners is much more than a coworking space. We are a not for profit, passionate community of 300+ scalable tech startups that only exists thanks to our amazing sponsors - Google for Startups, UTS, Chartered Accountants, and Jobs for NSW.

We are dedicated to inspiring and helping startups get started, grow and succeed. Our goal is to make the hardest thing you’ve ever done easier. Being a Fishburners member means that you'll have the right connections, tools, facilities, resources, learning and development, and mentoring for your idea to come to life and flourish.

In addition to our memberships, we open our doors and host some of the largest, regular events in the Australian startup ecosystem, including our weekly lunchtime workshops, and Shark Tank-style, Friday Night Pitches (the first three Friday's of the month). Member or not, you're welcome to attend and/or get involved! Please note that all registrations need to happen via our Humanitix page (http://go.fishburners.org/events-sydney).

And if you're looking for a spacious (up to 300 pax capacity), quirky, startup-esque, convenient (next to Wynyard station) and flexible space to host your next event, with a bar and catering options, then look no further than our event venue (https://fishburners.org/venue-hire-sydney). Make sure to get in touch and enquire by emailing jane@fishburners.org.

Want to get involved?

If you would like to get involved by submitting your news, hacks or story, or pitching, judging or sponsoring Friday Night Pitches, or running a workshop or round table, or joining our partner network, or providing one on one mentoring, or offering a perk/member discount, please submit an application here (https://fishburners.typeform.com/to/zYXIJO).

We hope to see you soon!
