By joining Fishburners you are joining a highly-collaborative community where members actively volunteer their time to help another Burner out. Our members have a wide range of skills and have overcome the same challenges you’re likely to face - the Fishburners culture is built on sharing that experience and advice with burners in need.

To help burners meet, we run regular community activities like our weekly lunch group, member-run workshops, Friday night pitches, sport groups, in-house movie nights, out-of-office weekend trips and more!

About Fishburners

Fishburners is a not-for-profit charity dedicated to creating highly scalable Australian tech startups, through inspiration, collection and connection to support.

Started in 2011, we're proud to have become Australia's largest community of highly scalable tech startups, Australia's largest host of startup-focused events, Australia's largest funnel for new startups, and the largest charity in Australia dedicated to supporting startups.

Every desk inside our communities is used by either a validated highly-scalable startup, or someone creating these kinds of startups.

We welcome enquiries from accelerators looking for space, and companies with genuine opportunities to help startups succeed.
