Flounders Club is a periodic gathering of Auckland-based founders of companies, generally very high growth and relatively early stage.
It’s not actually a club – but simply an event focused on learning from other founders (rather than advisors or other boring speakers), and on meeting other people like yourself who are going through the start-up journey.
There are also two smaller Flounders dinner groups that meet about every month, and the ambition is that more of these will be created as well.
The event is by founders and for founders, and while food and some beverages are served the main value is that everyone in the ecosystem is getting better.
The Next Event
The next event is on Tuesday 10th at 6pm. There will be 3 guests up front as normal – this time they are Lance Hodges – ex VP of Product at Vend and co-founder of HopVentures, Josh Robb, who is VP of Engineering at publicly listed PushPay and coping with outrageous US growth and Belinda Tuki, a 2nd time founder who is rapidly growing The Honest Food company.
The speakers are more there to provoke conversation – we learn from them, but also from the interaction with the audience during and after their talk.
