South West Founders is a monthly meet-up for people based in the South-West who have been, are, or want to be tech start-up founders. The aim is to connect local entrepreneurs with co-founders and other like-minded people as well as tech investors to create an informal support network.
The focus is on scalable and disruptive tech businesses. Entrepreneurs and tech investors are welcome with open arms, but discourage freelancers, consultants, lawyers and other service providers unless they have a genuine interest in founding or mentoring start-up businesses. We have a strict 'no selling' rule at our events.
WE HAVE A NEW FORMAT!
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!
This month we have:
Rick Chapman on "How to actually start a start-up? Practical steps to getting started..."
Then networking like normal afterwards. Please find out more on the Meetup page!
