How to find us

Level 2, in our brand new event space!

Every Friday night from 5pm, Fishburners opens its doors to host pitches and networking! We are a non for profit community of entrepreneurs that is dedicated to growing tech startups - and this is Australia's largest, most regular event in the ecosystem.

If you're looking for inspiration to start a business, are keen to learn some pitch tips, or just want to find out what startups are new in Sydney, this is for you.

In 2019, we will be asking for a $5 donation for our pitch nights at the door or via our event ticketing platform - Humanitix. In addition to putting the ticket booking fee toward Room to Read - our charity of choice, we will be directing this money back into the Fishburners community and toward some of our event costs (such as drinks & snacks).

Please make sure to grab your ticket here, or as you arrive at the door;

The event schedule for Friday Night Pitches is as follows:

• 5PM: Networking & drinks

• 5:30PM: Pitches begin. Grab a seat! No talking during this time :)

• 6:30PM-8PM (approx.): Networking

• 8PM: Event concludes


Please note that Fishburners values inclusive communities and all events hosted here are governed by our community code of conduct. This stems from our desire to run a productive and valuable night for our founders and all attendees where everyone feels safe and welcome to attend, bring friends, meet new people, and enjoy the start up landscape.

To make sure we have the best environment in support of this, in cases where someone is detracting from this goal they may be asked to leave for excessive drinking, antisocial behaviour, speaking during the pitches or disengagement with the purpose of the night. If any issues arise that make you feel uncomfortable please don’t hesitate to come and speak to one of the team.

We hope that by this everyone will enjoy an even more energetic and exciting event, continuing to grow in numbers as we focus all our considerable resources on supporting the skills and passions of us all in the start up industry.

See you soon!
