What we're about

Silicon Beach Brisbane is all about brining the tech community together. It 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 types, and a great first point of call for newcomers to the startup community in Brisbane.

With nearly 3000 members attending hundreds of events over the past 5-years, we couldn’t be prouder of what the Silicon Beach Brisbane community has achieved.

We also host ad hoc meetups, which are mostly social or educational events and collaborations with other meetups, co-working spaces and startup service 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.

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

Every startup hub globally has a supporting ecosystem that makes tech innovation thrive. So what can Australia do? How can that big island with the best beaches in the world, harness the passionate, intelligent individuals who care to do more? Let's get connected and make it happen.

It is easy to get lost when designing a new product or service when your goal isn’t defined properly. Most ideas that we are coming up with during the ideation process will be liked by some of our customers. As the humans that we are we like the idea that the product of our creative work will be loved and as soon as we find someone that we identify to do loves an idea, we are drawn towards the positive emotions. In that situation, it becomes quite easy to become complacent and going for the low hanging fruit but forgetting about the big price.
