TechMeetups has been setup to create a global network of Tech Startup communities from San Francisco to Sydney.

We believe that Startup communities are isolated and great things can be achieved if we connect within our cities and outside our borders. Our goal is to create a global Tech cluster of over 50 inter-connected Startup communities by 2015.

We help Startups through Events like Meetups, Workshops, Hackathons, Job Fairs, etc. We also have a few other platforms to help your specific needs like: TechStartupJobs to help you recruit your team, TechStartupFund to crowd fund your startup without giving away any equity, TechIdeaHub to form like minded collaborators around your Startup Idea and also a Startup dedicated News site called TechStartHub.
