startup get-togethers in Lausanne?

Dear all,
hi!
I've just moved to Lausanne and will be starting up an online research company (my wife's here, working for Nestle R&D).
Afraid I've been sheltered in academia forever! This is perhaps quite a naive question, but does anyone know of any get-togethers for startups in Lausanne? I'm keen to get to know others in my position, especially those just starting out, and indeed, working at home whilst things get established. Good to share tips!
Cheers all,
Andy.

Re: startup get-togethers in Lausanne?

A quick update. I searched through glocals without too much success (there's a 'Young Adult Expat Meetup Group' with ~100 members but not my cup of tea).
Leave me a message if you're also looking for such a group. With enough people we'll start one.
Cheers,
Andy.

Im not looking for one, but Ill join just to meet up! Isnt much in terms of VC here in CH. Most of the start-ups I know of in CH are seeded by UK or US money. And these guys are a bit private about their endeavors. But Im up for a tea and chat about start ups.

Re: startup get-togethers in Lausanne?

Hi Andy and all,

I'm in the same boat. Recently arrived to Lausanne from Australia and am keen to get together with the local entrepreneurship community.

Have you already organised a get together?
If not, shall we organise a catch up?

Ed.

Re: startup get-togethers in Lausanne?

Hi all,
sorry for the late reply.
I've started a facebook group called 'Lausanne Startup Beers' (link). Can you join that, and when we have say over 5 people, we can use facebook to organise some drinks.
Cheers,
Andy.

Feel free to come along later whatever you do. People who want to talk about businessy stuff can do and people who dont, dont Perhaps this group can also evolve down the line of 'i fancy meeting people in lausanne for drinks'.
