Growing the London tech community, one follicle at a time
3beards is an events company for London’s tech, creative & entrepreneurial communities.
Started by three guys with beards, we strive to put on great events that grow real-life communities.
- Michael Hobson
- Bryce Keane
- Joe Scarboro
With a portfolio that includes the weekly Silicon Drinkabout, monthly Don't Pitch Me, Bro! and quarterly Digital Sizzle, our events are regular, accessible and focus on creating meaningful connections aimed at collaborative growth for London’s start-up ecosystem.
Grown by the community for the community, we don't mess around because we believe entrepreneurs, more than any other business sector, need an active and healthy support network to succeed. Oh, and life’s too short to waste time shaving.

Back in early 2011, we decided that there was something missing from London's growing tech start-up and wider creative agency scene. With a plethora of networking events around, none of them truly brought people from across the creative disciplines and industries together for a night of food, drink, good company and fun interaction.
With that in mind, we set up Digital Sizzle – our iconic quarterly BBQ event to tick all the boxes! Now in our second year, we’re aiming to bring even more to the table, including panels, debates, and entertainment.
Silicon Drinkabout is a regular after work drinks for startups every Friday, usually at a venue in or around Old Street & Shoreditch!
Founded by Mind Candy, and organised by 3beards, Silicon Drinkabout is open to startups of all sizes as a place to meet like-minded people, have some fun, bounce ideas around, find talent and relax after another busy week in East London’s tech cluster.
Don't Pitch Me Bro
Get the feedback your product deserves, not the feedback your pitch earns..
Don't Pitch Me, Bro! is designed to get to the nitty gritty of solving real start-up business problems. We give start-ups the stage to give a product demo and identify the developmental problems they’re facing, and fill the room with 100 people from different backgrounds to solve those problems live – think of it as a dedicated monthly focus group for start-ups.
