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.

How OKRs helped a Perth startup grow from zero to millions

Morning Startup veteran, Jesse Emia, implemented the OKR framework at his business KeepSpace, and will be sharing his experience on how they helped the business grow from zero to over $4 million in revenue in under 5 years.

Jesse will candidly describe the following top three strategies that helped KeepSpace overcome insane challenges:

- Their management system - Objectives and Key Results (OKRs)
- Their culture system - Delivering happiness and tribal teams
- Their share system - Dynamic Equity Splitting and Vesting Agreements

Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) is a goal-setting framework that helps companies tie their strategic objectives with actual day-to-day work and measure progress. OKRs have been adopted by many successful companies such as Google, Uber, Asana, LinkedIn and Microsoft, helping them stay on time and on track what matters most.

Still on the journey today, Jesse wanted to share this story before he ventures into the next KeepSpace chapter - a large expansion that will take him away from Perth to the east coast.

So come along and wish Jesse well for the big move, and learn about some of the systems that can support building your team and your startup’s financial security.

As always, we'll open the floor for other founders looking for help with the next step to do a shameless plug, as well as half an hour or so of general networking, chin-wagging and startup-related chit chat.

Jesse has been a part of the Perth startup community for over 10 years, watching and developing practical innovations and software systems in the logistics and inventory space. He is an avid learner of entrepreneurship and business development processes and having been in the trenches for over 6 years, he knows how to grind through the crap times and has builit a scalable company with over 18 staff members and growing.

Free oat milk samples from Dirty Clean Food!

But wait, there's more! You heard Jay Albany and Ben Cole from Dirty Clean Food tell their startup story at Morning Startup just over a year ago, but they've recently finalised their second round of financing and are now building WA’s first commercial oat milk plant!

To celebrate, Dirty Clean Food will be providing free oat milk samples (including their oat milk cold brew coffee) for all attendees for the next two sessions to get the word out about this exciting project! Dirty Clean Food’s oat milk plant will be in Kewdale and produce the lowest carbon oat milk on the planet (before offsets!)

If you prefer a hot coffee to get you going, then head across the road to Voltage Espresso and tell them you're heading to Morning Startup for a small discount on their amazing coffee.

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!
