Next Meetup

Meet the Perth Angels
!!! VENUE CHANGE - This week we're at the Flux Basement again - 191 St Georges Terrace, Perth WA 6000, due to renovations at Riff. !!! We are excited to host Ian Brown, Chairman of Perth Angels. Perth Angels is a passionate group of actively engaged private investors that provide access to investment capital, mentorship, networking and support to newly established ventures, entrepreneurs and innovative business owners in Western Australia. As Derek Gerrard mentioned at Morning Startup last month, there is a misconception among the startup community that there is no investment money in Perth. But from an investor's point of view, there's a misconception that there is no deal-flow in Perth. The issue is that the two groups need to be better connected! So please come along, meet the Perth Angels and find out everything you need to know about what they do, why they do it and how they can help your startup. About Ian Brown: Ian is a successful entrepreneur with global commercial experience across industries.

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!

You can contact the organisers either by sending a message through this meetup group, or via:
