How We Got Started

Fishburners was established in 2011 by successful tech entrepreneurs Mike Casey and Pete Davison to provide a vibrant community of like minded entrepreneurs who could share ideas and learn from each other as they forged new frontiers, using technology to innovate and develop new products and services and to create new jobs.

That legacy continues and has grown and strengthened to become Australia’s largest startup community with over 1000 entrepreneurs creating the innovations and jobs that are fueling our economy, today and tomorrow.
