Whether you've met Nikki and Peter or not, you've no doubt heard about their huge success with 99dresses and the impact they're having on the fashion world. Nikki was even named one of Sydney's Top 100 Most Influential People by the Sydney Morning Herald!
They went through the YCombinator program in Silicon Valley ending in March this year, with tech pundits like Robert Scoble and Ben Parr naming 99dresses amongst the best pitches of the 66-strong field.
Nikki Durkin and Peter Delahunty will return to Australia in a few weeks, and on June 1 they will be telling their story at the Fishburner's Event Space at Level 1, 608 Harris St, Ultimo.
You'll have the chance to hear unique insights about how Nikki and Peter successfully made it into the YCombinator program, what they learned and achieved, and what the future holds for 99dresses as a result of it.
They were just recently in the Sydney Morning Herald! http://www.smh.com.au/technology/technology-news/brain-drain-why-young-entrepreneurs-leave-home-20120517-1ytoo.html
There will be plenty of exciting news to announce, lots to drink, great entrepreneurs to socialise with, and the opportunity to ask Nikki and Peter anything you want! This is a unique opportunity to get into the nitty gritty of a startup that has been a part of the YCombinator incubator.
Hope to see you there!
