Silicon Drinkabout

Silicon Drinkabout is a global regular after work drinks evening for startups every Friday! Run by 3beards (and originally founded by Mind Candy), Silicon Drinkabout is open to startups of all sizes as a place to meet like-minded people, have some fun and relax after another busy week.


Local organisers:

  • Michael Hobson

    Michael Hobson

    Co-Founder & Creative Lead, 3beards

    Mike is co-founder and the resident designer of 3beards. Branding, community engagement and tone of voice are his gig - keeping people entertained makes his beard grow stronger. He's had a well-funded but failed startup - the social decision making app, Pollarize. He also does freelance design work - check out his portfolio, Tremulant Design.

  • Joe Scarboro

    Joe Scarboro

    Co-Founder, 3beards

    Former CFO for an oil/shipping company, Joe decided that the corporate life wasn't for him and jumped ship! Having previously worked for a tech start-up, he was keen to get back into the scene and is now one of the 3beards.

  • Kevin Plattret

    Kevin Plattret

    Web Developer, 3beards

    Kevin is a Web Developer and 3beards’ first employee. He is in charge of anything technical here and also enjoys the occasional bit of design on his side projects. Kevin studied Digital Media at the University of Burgundy and then worked as a Web Developer and Project Manager in a Soho based web agency before he joined us in June 2013. He likes beautiful code, learning new things and a bit of banter – generally over Gin and tonic.

  • Vicky Hunter

    Vicky Hunter

    Events and Community Manager, 3beards

    Having discovered the start-up scene whilst studying for a Masters in Events Management in Newcastle, Vicky moved to London and became a familiar face at Campus London and 3beards’ events. Relieved that facial hair wasn’t a necessity, Vicky happily joined the team as Events and Community Manager, and is proud to be the first female Beard!
