Hi Silicon Beachers!
Welcome to the newbies.. we have many, having just passed 5,300 members! It’s official, we are the fastest growing tech/startup community in the #MostLiveableStartupCity. Turn up on Thursday and get to know your new community.
We keep everything unstructured and informal, just like a startup.
Around 6.30pm we will have the 90second pitch segment – yes, we used to have it at 7pm. But a lot of members told us to have it earlier.
We ask that those of you who want to pitch, give their web address (URL) to one of the event hosts so we don’t waste time typing it in. Don’t forget we live stream it on Periscope and save it on Katch and now on YouTube too.
Therefore, We like to keep it short and sharp. Each pitch will be limited to 90 seconds and the whole segment limited to 40 mins, so you could get back to the main purpose of the MSB Drinks – making connections with other Silicon Beachers.
Keep up with our plans and progress in 2016, please make sure you read SiliconNews our new email newsletter. Past issues can be accessed on Medium. Share with your friends.
SiliconNews launched in early January this year and we have had six issues so far. We will continue with the same frequency, with 3 issues in a month. We aim to mailout SiliconNews on the 10th, 20th and 30th of the month with submissions closing 3 days prior to publication.
Here are some events we got to know about after SiliconNews went out –
Monday March 7th
