Monthly Pitch and Drinks Night
Our regular monthly MSB Drinks meetup happens on the first Thursday night of every month (except January).
They usually attract around 100 – 150 Silicon Beachers. They are FREE networking events purposely kept very unstructured, so that our members can chat and get to know each other over drinks. The 90-second pitch segment is where anyone is encouraged to pitch their idea, startup, app or whatever. This is an excellent way to get used to pitching and get feedback from like-minded peers.
We livestream this segment via Periscope, which garners interest worldwide.
