Sydney Founder's Exchange
Wednesday, September 26th from 6:30pm
The startup world's most interesting and influential stories will never come out in a press release. The lessons that matter are shared between peers over beers. The founder's exchange is where we want this to happen.
This event features a half dozen top Sydney founders speaking for 10 minutes a piece, preceded and followed by abundant booze and a wonderful crowd of local entrepreneurs and innovators. Fun, fast-paced, and varied, the founder's exchange is a whirlwind tour of the community's most impactful lessons learned, plus plenty of time to exchange your own.
I hope you'll join us!
