South West Founders Meetup – SWF

Wednesday 8th January 2014 – 7pm

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. They 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.

So not a talk event, but a friendly and not-pushy networking event.
