The Best Thing About Fishburners is The Community

It’s our goal to build the best startup community here in Sydney.

A big advantage of working in an office with so many fellow entrepreneurs is skill sharing. Our members have a wide range of skills and experience which can make a world of difference when you hit a roadblock. Read More...

CryptoParty

6pm to 8pm

Fishburners, Basement

Are you concerned with privacy issues? You want to learn some practical tips and references to software and technologies that will help you increase your security? If you answered at least one of these questions with “Yes”, then you should come along to one of our meetings! We are all about providing resources and help for anyone seeking to secure their communication in a casual, fun, and positive environment. Our events are free of charge, open to anyone, and politically non-aligned. The topics which are covered in each session depend on what attendees are keen to learn. We normally tend to start off with a short presentation and then move to a hands-on part during which you will be able to get one-on-one help with electronic privacy tools. It is important that you bring your laptop to really get the most out of the meeting, but don’t worry: No prior knowledge and skills on the subject-matter are expected! more...

B3 Blockchain Meetup

7am to 9am

Fishburners, Level 1

The aim of the b3 Blockchain brekkie meetup is to cut through all the technical complexity; to enable you to experience the power of the Blockchain; to let you see and hear, first hand, how it is being used in practice globally by best-in-class, global practitioners. You will then begin to understand why there is so much interest in Blockchain technology; a technology that is new, raw, but full of potential. This will enable you to see how it can be used to improve your business or organisation or who knows, it might even inspire you to create your own Blockchain start-up. By being part of the Aussie Blockchain ecosystem you will be at the leading edge (aka bleeding edge) of change not only here, but globally. more...
