Southwest Meetup

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. We aim to connect local entrepreneurs with co-founders and other like-minded people as well as tech investors to create an informal support network.

Our focus is on scalable and disruptive tech businesses. We welcome entrepreneurs and tech investors 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.

The format of the meet-ups is very casual. Turn up, sign in and get a name badge which will tell everybody who you are and what you’ve come for. The badge also has one other important purpose – it will get you free drinks at the bar courtesy of our sponsors. Please check out their links on our page.
