+What is a tech startup?
A startup is an early stage (we define early stage as less than $200k revenue or investment) business that is creating a product/platform to reach a significant market. Remember your startup doesn’t necessarily need to be in the tech sector to be a tech startup, it just needs to be leveraging technology. Some examples of tech startups are uber, ebay and airbnb. Although these businesses are in the transport, retail and accommodation industries they are leveraging technology to reach more customers.
+Why do you only accept early stage startups?
- We prefer to accept startups that need us. We find early stage startup generally need more guidance and support so are more likely to take advantage of what Possum Works has to offer.
+What’s the best way to learn more about Possum Works?
The best way to find out more information about Possum Works is by attending one of our tours. On the tour you will get to view our two storey coworking space, hear about how we got started, find out what’s it’s like to be a Possum and why we are different to other coworking spaces.
+I’m interested in the deals you provide, but don’t need a desk. Do you provide a virtual membership?
We provide a virtual membership for $99 per annum, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss
+What will I do on my trial?
Your trial will allow you to experience life as a Possum for a week. You will get to attend any events or workshops happening that week, join our Wednesday lunch group and Friday pitches. We will also do all we can to connect you with relevant startups, just let us know who you think you might want to meet! At the end of the week, if you decide you want to join Possum Works, we will organise an acceptance interview with Possum Works management.
+I have an overseas startup but will be expanding to Australia. Can I set up my Australian office at Fishburners?
