CoFounders Austin – August 2015

What are we about? 

If you are looking for Co-Founders, want to join an early-stage startup, or just want to connect with some brilliant inventors / entrepreneurs,  this is the meet up for you. Since 2010, we are organizing pitch events for co-founders to network and those who want to work for a pre VC stage startup, or are looking to invest in one.

Cofounders Austin is like networking event, except fun; like a party, except business-oriented, and like a startup pitch series, except informal and fast-paced.  The result is a one-of-a-kind experience that makes for the perfect evening with food and beverages provided, for entrepreneurs, investors, tech enthusiasts, and fun seekers alike.

When and where do we meet?

Every second Tuesday of every month, we gather at Capital Factory (downtown Austin) from 6:30-9PM.

This month we’re meeting on August 10, 2015.
