Going Out West with the Local Entrepreneurial Community 


We know the extraordinary traits needed to make an entrepreneur and that united in knowledge sharing we are an extraordinary community together. #STARTWEST is a monthly meetup for entrepreneurs from across the Western suburbs. This project was born from a partnership with LaunchVic and a multi-council cooperation between Hobsons Bay, Maribyrnong, Moonee Valley and Wyndham.  


#STARTWEST meetups appeal to entrepreneurial thinkers from small business owners looking to scale their business to first time launchers. Meetups are specifically designed with interactive tools to establish pathways for connectivity and collaboration. The original project title of ‘OutWest’ was conceived when identifying a need for peer-to-peer education in the entrepreneurial community. A fireside chat serves as the centerpiece of the evening with speakers including Google team leaders and self-made founders. #STARTWEST Festival 2019 is now announced to gather Western entrepreneurs in celebrating the startup ecosystem through education and synergy.
