Live Q&A with Peter Davison (PayPal / Fishburners) on 16th October 2018

Peter Davison, first seed investor in PayPal, key adviser to Peter Thiel & founder of Australia’s largest co-working space ‘Fishburners’ (also now in Shanghai) did a Fireside Chat and live Q&A with us at the Tuspark Eagle Lab co-working space in Newcastle on Tuesday 16th October.

Peter’s ancestors emanate from the Newcastle area so his team emailed us after reading about Newcastle Startup Week as he was keen to get to know the local startup scene and share with them his personal learnings from his lengthy career within the startup industry in Silicon Valley, Australia and China.

Whether you work for a startup, scaleup or enterprise level business, are an investor, adviser or just keen supporter of the North East business community, this was a chance to hear first hand what Silicon Valley is really like and what it takes to grow a successful tech community in your town or city!

We were delighted to see over 100 people at the event and whether you were or not, it’s worth listening to Peter’s words of wisdom again via the Facebook Live video below:
