Growing the startup community, one follicle at a time

3beards are a content, promotion and events company. Sounds a bit dull and corporate,
but there it is. We felt that 'Community Firestarter-enablers' sounded a bit overblown.



With a portfolio that includes the weekly Silicon Drinkabout, monthly Don't Pitch Me, Bro! and Chew The Fat, and quarterly Digital Sizzle, our events are regular, accessible and focus on creating meaningful connections aimed at collaborative growth for London’s start-up ecosystem.

Grown by the community for the community, we don't mess around because we believe entrepreneurs, more than any other business sector, need an active and healthy support network to succeed. Oh, and life’s too short to waste time shaving.

Upcoming 3beards events:

Fri 15th August - Silicon Drinkabout

Fri 22nd August - Silicon Drinkabout

Thu 28th July - Don't Pitch Me Bro 24

Fri 29th August - Silicon Drinkabout

Fri 5th September - Silicon Drinkabout

Silicon Drinkabout is a regular after work drinks for startups every Friday, usually at a venue in or around Old Street & Shoreditch!

Founded by Mind Candy, and organised by 3beards, Silicon Drinkabout is open to startups of all sizes as a place to meet like-minded people, have some fun, bounce ideas around, find talent and relax after another busy week in East London’s tech cluster.

Get the feedback your product deserves, not the feedback your pitch earns..

Don't Pitch Me, Bro! is designed to get to the nitty gritty of solving real start-up business problems. We give start-ups the stage to give a product demo and identify the developmental problems they’re facing, and fill the room with 100 people from different backgrounds to solve those problems live – think of it as a dedicated monthly focus group for start-ups.

'Chew The Fat' is a monthly series of conversations with high profile entrepreneurs, founders, VC's and generally epic people, designed to stimulate, motivate and inspire!

Adding to our existing roster of tech events, we'd like to welcome you all to 3beards' fourth event, 'Chew The Fat' - crafted to feed your brain and to get to the meat of the matter...

Back in early 2011, we decided that there was something missing from London's growing tech start-up and wider creative agency scene. With a plethora of networking events around, none of them truly brought people from across the creative disciplines and industries together for a night of food, drink, good company and fun interaction.

With that in mind, we set up Digital Sizzle – our iconic quarterly BBQ event to tick all the boxes! Now in our second year, we’re aiming to bring even more to the table, including panels, debates, and entertainment.
