South West Founders is one of the most popular in the TechSPARK calendar with some great conversations and networking.

WE HAVE A NEW FORMAT and a new start time!

The new format for SWF is an event in two parts. Firstly a brief talk or workshop session from a leading expert locally on something super useful to early-stage entrepreneurs. Secondly, we'll have our more traditional peer-to-peer networking! All members are welcome to attend either element or (ideally) both!

Here are the timings of the new format:

6:00 Arrivals and networking
6.30 Content//speaker
6:50 Questions
7:00 Arrivals if you just want to attend the networking drinks
7:15 Tour of Framework for anyone who wants one
8:30 Close.

This month we have:

Cookies HQ Co-Founder Nic Alpi taking us through the journey of developing, creating and successfully running an agency.

Hear about the Good, the bad and the sometimes ugly world of startups, tech and the local scene. Garner some advice, share your tales or raise some questions at this enlightening session.

Cookies HQ creates web and mobile apps for businesses with purpose, their mission is to deliver unique products and build strong, lasting partnerships with our clients.

CookiesHQ was founded by husband and wife team, Nic and Nathalie Alpi, in 2011.

Nic started his first business when he was just 21 – so he understands the challenges our clients face every day.

Since then, they’ve grown organically into a team of talented developers, organisers and creatives. Their studio is based right here in Bristol, UK, and they work with organisations all around the globe.
