We had 218 RSVPs for our June MSB Pitch Night, out of which around 150 attended. Not bad at all considering the typically winter evening in Melbourne complete with chilly winds and occasional showers. As we race towards 10,000 members, it’s heartening to see increasing engagement – particularly from new members.
Over the coming months, we will be launching a number of new projects and events. Watch this space for details.
While we wait for the SiliconMedia team to work their magic on the official pitch videos, click below to view the Live Video Stream on Twitter (via Periscope). You don’t have to register with either of those services to watch it, but make sure you unmute the audio.
Please share with your networks.
SiliconMedia team ran a live audio stream of the night for the first time. You can listen here on our new website (in beta). Let us know if you encounter any bugs 🐛 🐜 🐞.
This will be added to SB Radio Podcast as a special episode. Subscribe to the podcast here on SoundCloud.

SiliconChats with Team Simpateco
Team Simpateco did their usual thing after the pitches. Here’s Linda having a number of #SiliconChats with the best of the pitchers. Her hubby, Dan was behind the camera (or should I say the phone). They are a shining example of a lean startup – just the phone and the two of them produce these little masterpieces.
Please help these brave founders on their journey. Share, like, retweet, comment as you think fit on LinkedIn, Twitter or wherever else that takes your fancy. Think what would you want if you were in their shoes 👞 👠? Oh, and don’t forget to tag your posts with the hashtag #EmpoweringFounders.
Our motto of #EmpoweringFounders should not be a hollow slogan not worth the pixels it occupies on your screen. Your help is needed to execute it.
Thank you 🙏🏽
