Start Up Cafe
Start Up Cafe is a place for entrepreneurs and start-ups to get together and share challenges, exchange advice and experiences with peers, and make new connections. It's an opportunity to set goals and be accountable, because we know it can be tough to stay on track when you're going solo.
We meet monthly, on the first Monday. Each session has a different 'conversation starter' topic, and every other month we invite a guest to run a workshop on a business related topic (please note: there is usually a small charge for workshop sessions.)
You can come and go as your schedule allows, no need to come every month.
We'll provide support, information and of course, biscuits. We just ask that you grab a coffee from our cafe.
