Meet & connect with fellow tech founders

Turing Fest Dinner

The startup journey is a hard one for founders & leaders, and we all need some peers and friends to share it with: sometimes you help them, sometimes they help you, but it always really helps to have a peer group you can lean on for advice, support, connections, learnings. Sometimes it is as simple a having like-minded folk whose company you can enjoy at the end of a long day.

Our Founders dinners provide the perfect environment to meet fellow tech founders and leaders to support you on your journey.

Relaxed networking & inspiring conversations

Typically at a dinner, we have a couple of fireside chats between courses: we usually have at least one founder sharing their journey and lessons learned along the way, and normally also one active early stage tech investor who can bring a different perspective to the conversation. We also often arrange office hours for those investors, with network members getting the opportunity of 1:1 meetings with investors seeking deal flow.

Sound good? Join us for a series of informal evening events that are exclusively for startup founders & leaders where you can learn, network, and have fun.

Why attend a Founders Dinner?

Grow your network

Establish a solid support network of peers who can relate to your experiences. Meet likeminded founders and find your safe space to share your challenges, wins and everything in between with.

Meet investors

Regardless of what stage you are at in the funding process, we always aim to have at least one investor join us as a guest to give their insights and discover your business.

Learn from your peers

There isn’t a course on becoming a successful founder of a tech startup, but there is a network of peers happy to share their insights and learnings from their journey to help you on yours.
