River City Labs If you work any sort of innovative or technology related business then River City Labs is where you meet, socialise and learn with other like minded people. It is not all about work, but about ideas and connecting with people who are also motivated by change.
River City Labs is a community and space for startup businesses in the Brisbane area. While you might imagine it is a place for IT geeks, there are all sorts of people involved, including creative types, business people and people from industry and government. However everyone is there with the motivation for change and innovation.
The easiest way to get involved is start to attend events and learn more about startups and technology innovation in general. If you have a business idea and you need a space to work then you can become a member.
The Content Strategy Group meets monthly and is for anyone who creates or works with digital or online content. It is an example of some of the events and sessions held by River City Labs that are aimed at the broader community outside of startups.
For those people with ideas looking for money there are the regular RiverPitch sessions where pre-screened ideas are pitched to potential investors.
There are also numerous ad hoc events for pitching, finding investment, legal issues and just hanging out with other people with ideas or active in the startup industry.
