Open Coworking Day @ Revolver Lane, Prahran
Ahoy Silicon Beachers! You are invited to come and “work weird” for a day at one of the most irreverent, yet professional coworking spaces in Melbourne. Celebrate your weirdness - entrepreneurs, most definitely startup founders and wannabe founders are not your average people - you know that, right? This space recognises and celebrates that. See the photos below. Formerly the Revolver Music Gallery, this expansive 2,000+ square metre space has been converted into one of Melbourne’s most unique workspaces, Revolver Lane (set under and alongside the infamous Revolver Upstairs nightclub). Set in a building that is well over 100 years old, this old lady has character and personality. Add yours! Startup lawyers General Standards, entrepreneur community Foundr, tech startups Powered Local and LeadChat, and creative agencies TheROQUE and Hedgehog Agency, are just a few who’ve made this incredible space their home. Cowork with them for a day and be inspired. Your future self will thank you. Revolver Lane has casual lounges, airy open spaces with lots of natural light, gallery space, event space and private meeting rooms. They have recently added a new extension with ample hot desking options for the casual coworkers. Most importantly, they have private offices of various sizes for your startup/small business to move in as you grow. You don’t have to start searching for new office space when you go global - it’s all here, in Prahran. After office hours, Revolver Lane turns into a versatile hub hosting everything from seminars, workshops, parties and launches, as well as featuring a range of regular entrepreneurial events. Watch this space for some very unique events specially curated for Silicon Beach. But for now, come and be a guest of the founder, startup lawyer and Silicon Beacher, Kurt Falkenstein. Kurt’s been a Silicon Beacher since June 2011. He is also a co-founder of General Standards - a law firm that’s been serving startups since 2005. Talk to him and his team at http://generalstandards.co/ and tell ‘em you are a Silicon Beacher! Join the Revolver Lane revolution and feel the difference. Check out the specs at - http://revolvercoworking.com.au/ Stand by for an announcement on very special coworking rates for Silicon Beachers! See you at Revolver Lane 😀

What we're about

Melbourne Silicon Beach (MSB) is an informal group for anyone interested in founding or working in startups, dev/design in web/mobile tech, IoT, freelancing, investing or working with people in that space. We are a diverse bunch covering all ages, backgrounds and first point of call for newcomers to the startup community in Melbourne.

Have a look at SiliconNews (https://medium.com/siliconnews), our publication on Medium. Got something to say? All our members are welcome to submit articles for publication. For more information connect with us on SB Oz Slack channel (http://slack.siliconbeach.community/).

Watch past 90second pitches at our flagship monthly event - MSB Drinks and Pitch Nights on Silicon Beach TV (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3GhayN9HpW3ulJV7s9AqSg?). Listen to our podcasts on Silicon Beach Radio (http://siliconbeachradio.com/)

Silicon Beach Meetups happen around Australia (http://www.siliconbeachaustralia.org/) and there is a discussion group at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/sil ...

Our regular monthly MSB Drinks meetup happens on the first Thursday night of every month (except January). They usually attract around 100 - 150 Silicon Beachers. They are FREE networking events purposely kept very unstructured, so that our members can chat and get to know each other over a drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic).

Main feature is the 90 second pitch segment where anyone is encouraged to pitch their idea, startup, app or whatever. This is an excellent way to get used to pitching and get feedback from a bunch of non judgemental peers.

We also host ad hoc meetups, educational events and collaborations with other meetups, co-working spaces and education providers. Be sure to stay connected with us, make sure you enable messages from meetup organisers and whitelist emails from meetup.com domain so they don't get treated as spam.

MSB is about you, we provide you the platform that will enable you to be that awesome startup founder, tech founder, coder, freelancer or whoever you want to be.
