Next Meetup

From Scrappy Startup to Acquisition and Beyond!
This week at Morning Startup, Andrew Walker, founder and CEO of Spatula.io (now known as WeDispatch.io), will share his five year startup journey from the early 'scrappy startup' days working out of the back rooms of a trampoline park, to being acquired by an Irish-based company, to now heading up the technology of rapidly growing global logistics group. For budding entrepreneurs, this is an inspiring story of how hard work, resilience, and persistence can pay off, regardless of being based in Perth without an abundance of funding and resources. Andrew will share how they looked beyond local markets and local investors for the right sales and investment opportunities, as well as the challenges that lie ahead, scaling-up a demanding technology business in Perth. He also has some interesting techniques for hiring new talent, including the new (hopefully regular) event he put together where companies pitch to developers, reverse-sharktank style. So come along, hear a great story, meet some awesome people, and start the day inspired! Don't forget to grab a Voltage Espresso on the way (https://www.facebook.com/voltageespresso/). Tell them Morning Startup sent you for a discount! Wednesday 31st of October, 7:30 am at Riff (Spacecubed). See you there!

What we're about

Morning Startup - Perth - where people talk about startups.

If you're involved in a startup, or thinking about starting one, chances are you can learn from others that are doing and thinking the same.

Morning Startup is a fortnightly morning catchup where founders, potential entrepreneurs and others in the startup community (VCs and Angels welcome) get together to learn something interesting, get feedback on idea, vent frustrations, and meet some new friends in the game. We look forward to seeing you there!
