First Tuesday of every month at 6.00pm
There is a wealth of entrepreneurial talent in our city and region, but do you know the stories behind the successful businesses? Each month we invite in a tech entrepreneur for an informal chat about their business - the highs and the lows of their journey so far, and what their hopes are for the future. Prepare for some candid tales of what went wrong and come away with some tips of what might help your own business to grow. Share a post-work drink with fellow entrepreneurs and hear the inside track about the sometimes winding road to success.
Lunch and Learns
Third Thursday of every month from 12 noon
Delivered by entrepreneurs and experts in their field, the monthly Lunch and Learns in the Cooper Session series are the perfect opportunity to grab a bite to eat with fellow entrepreneurs and learn something useful over your lunch break. We will cover a range of topics such as leadership, organisational culture and investment readiness, but we’re open to hearing your suggestions for what topics you’d like to learn about in future months. We promise that you’ll leave each session with something that you can implement immediately in your business - whether that’s a quick fix for an ongoing niggle, or a more in-depth solution that will unlock the next stage of business growth.
