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 helps to have a peer group you can lean on for advice, support, connections, and learnings. Sometimes it is as simple as 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 at product startups to support you on your journey.

Relaxed networking & inspiring conversations

These are relaxed, informal gatherings of 20-30 people. 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 often will have an 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 like minded founders and find your safe space to share your challenges, wins and everything in between with.

Meet investors

We have relationships with many early-stage investors, and will often invite them to join us as a guest to give their insights and to meet founders.

Learn from your peers

The best people to learn from as a founder are other founders who are further down the road than you, or are have tackled problems you are encountering. This is a peer network where everyone is open to help, share their hard-earned wisdom, and pay it forward.
