A community for software business founders based in Sussex.

Over the last twelve years we've connected over 1,000 founders through regular informal meetups in and around Brighton.  If you share our ambition to build lasting, independent software businesses in this beautiful, bohemian part of the world, we can't wait to meet you!

Next Meetup: March 12th 2020

The Spring Forward Festival is a celebration of #womenintech in Brighton, running throughout March.  We're supporting them for our March meetup, with Create.net CEO Rebecca Kimber joining us to host, along with other women with software businesses, at Presuming Ed's any time between 9am and 11am.

Our monthly meetup takes place on the second Thursday of every month.
