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:

Here are some principles that govern how we make decisions about the group, member communications, and other fun stuff. Have something you'd like to share with our members? Read these principles first.

Designing your startup's culture - with Mark Lakewood (Twilio)

When building organisations we often talk about what's being built, revenue, number of people, business plans etc. But often the more important part is the culture, and how that drives the organisation to make decisions.

Armed with first-hand experience at a hyper-growth startup in San Francisco, Mark Lakewood has grown an appreciation for the importance of culture in an organisation's success as well as an individual's success.

In this session, Mark will share some experiences and lessons to draw from these, along with some practical advice when thinking about culture in your organisation.

About Mark

Mark Lakewood is a Dad and a Platform Architect at Twilio. He grew up down south in Bunbury, before moving to Perth and doing Computer Science and Film at Murdoch University.

Mark and his wife decided to move to San Francisco in 2013, where he boarded the good (Rocket)ship Twilio. He has just recently moved back to Perth, and is getting back into the swing of the West Australian lifestyle.

Founder Sundowner

Nowhereman Brewing Co

Calling all startup founders!

On the first Wednesday of each month, let's get together for a tasty beverage or two, celebrate and/or commiserate the month that was, and share plans and ideas for the month yet to be!

You might even meet your future Co-founder, Lead Programmer, or Chief Ninja of Ideation and Crypto Research.

As Elon Musk could have once said, "All my success is due to drinking with other startup founders as often as possible".

This is a very casual, monthly, after-work event, in addition to our fortnightly Morning Startup meetups at Spacecubed. So if you're not a morning person, this is for you!

There will be no speakers or formalities. Just a bunch of startups, in a pub, having fun, and learning from each other.

We may or may not have sponsors, so make sure you save up ahead of time to cover the cost of your own exotic cocktails and Perth-priced-drinks.

(If your company is interested in putting on a bar tab or buying a pizza or two, in exchange for exposure to the Perth Startup Community through our extensive member list, let's talk! [masked] )

To find us, ask the bar staff for the Founder Sundowner table and they'll point you in the right direction.

Look forward to seeing you there!

The TyreConnect Story: Scaling a 'Bogan B2B' startup through to successful exit

Ryan Wilson, a former greenskeeper, surfer and son of a tyre retailer had never set foot in startup forum, but in 2015 created a website for selling tyres that immediately took off.

A year later he met serial tech entrepreneur Stephen Langsford (former CEO and founder of Australia’s streaming pioneer Quickflix) and together they managed to turn TyreConnect into Australia’s leading B2B platform for the distribution of car tyres from their headquarters in Kewdale.

After growing annual revenues to $30 million in under five years and establishing TyreConnect as the preferred service for Australia’s largest dealership groups and major passenger vehicle brands, it was no surprise they attracted the attention of ASX giant Carsales, who recently acquired the company.

Come and hear valuable lessons from Ryan and Stephen on how they blitzscaled their business, outstripped the competition, got on the radar of major international companies and managed their way through to a successful exit.

About Ryan:
Ryan Wilson is the founder and GM of TyreConnect. https://www.linkedin.com/in/tyre-wholesale-supply

About Stephen:
Stephen Langsford recently stepped down as Executive Chairman of TyreConnect to pursue his next venture and assist growth companies in scaling. He has grown and successfully exited several ventures to ASX-listed companies.
