Melbourne Silicon Beach – Startup Spring 2015 Meetup

Melbourne Silicon Beach – Startup Spring 2015 Meetup

Melbourne Silicon Beach (MSB) with 4,150+ members is the fastest growing startup community in Melbourne. It’s the largest community in the Australia-wide network of Silicon Beach communities. This is the 2nd year we are participating in Startup Spring, Australia’s premier nation-wide festival celebrating startups, organised by StartupAus.

Silicon Beach is for anyone working on or interested in working with folks in technology startups, web/mobile apps/software/hardware, IoT, 3D printing, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and anything in between. We have among our midst entrepreneurs, professionals, creatives, small business owners, corporate escapees, freelancers, mums & dads with an app or business idea, service providers, investors, students of various disciplines and those wanting to be entrepreneurs one day. We are inviting the creative people of Melbourne – the people that make this city the most creative, artistic place in Australia. Melbourne Silicon Beach – in partnership with our major sponsors for this event – EATT Magazine and StartupAus, is proud to showcase Melbourne’s startup community along with our creative arts communities, makers, co-working spaces, incubators and the service providers that make Melbourne a great place to launch a startup. 

Help us make this event a roaring success by pledging to this campaign. Any extra funds and subsequent crowd funding campaigns will finance special projects such as :

1) SB TV (Periscope live streaming)

2) SB Radio (podcast)

3) SB member directory and member rewards program – both to be delivered via SB App

4) SB Internship program

7) Establishment of Silicon Beach communities in regional Victoria (Geelong SB opened in April 2015) and Tasmania.

8) Incorporating Silicon Beach as a non-profit entity so that we can support all of the above with government grants and a core team of staff to assist the volunteers

Our 1st crowdfunding campaign raised 167% of the target. Thank you so much to all who pledged to that campaign. We hope you will pledge again and sponsor us. We now have smaller pledges for individual members to support the community.

See how your money is helping the community – peek into the $iliconJar where the funds in and out will be displayed for all to see. If you have any questions please contact us via iPledg or meetup.

Hope to see you on Tue 29th Sept at the special MSB Startup Spring event, if you are in Melbourne.

If you are already a Silicon Beacher, RSVP on Meetup here. If you are not a member, you can join and RSVP to the event here

An Eventbrite page will be available soon if you are not a member and don’t want to join, but would like to come to the event. This event is open to the public and admission is FREE.

iPledg is an all or nothing crowd funding platform. That means if we do not reach our target we get nothing and nothing is taken from your PayPal account or credit card. If you can not support this project financially, please spread the word using the share buttons to share with your friends.

At Silicon Beach, we believe in Startup Karma – “give to the eco-system so that your startup may grow”. It works, ask anyone who’s been to Silicon Valley. The Valley has become such an innovative place because everyone there pays it forward. You don’t have to wait till you have “made it” to pay it forward. Start now and unleash the power of Startup Karma.

Help us bring a little bit of that Valley culture to the Beach.

Thank you so much for your pledge and/or sharing this page with your friends.
