We love angels, VCs, and startups, so feel free to join us for after work drinks on Friday's.
There's nothing formal going on here. We officially meet quarterly for drinks and food, and fun times with fun people. As an angel if you join, you'll always get an invite (as long as you don't break the rules). We invite a new set of founders each time.

We'll share our favourite startups with you if we know what you're looking for.
What Investors & Founders are saying about 361 Angels
If you are raising capital, you need to attend a 361 Angels event. Exceptional investors who truly cares about you and support you all the way. Proof? I raised additional $200k on top of our seed at the Q2 event. So grateful to have been invited 😄
Landing in Australia from Canada I needed to build my network of the best founders and investors. I achieved this all in one night at 361 Angel Club and also met my first Australian portfolio company Tiliter🚀
It was a solid first time experience at a networking event and I’m very grateful to have been given the opportunity. Meeting all those people last night has motivated me even more, and I can’t wait to go back to Melbourne and start grinding with the team. Cheers for a special night 🍻
