Meetup was born 10 years ago this month and since then 76 million people have RSVPed for events through the platform.
Ottawa's Shopify are great believers in the benefits of attending industry events like Meetups. So to celebrate the anniversary they are launching the Shopify Design Meet Up Fund and it's pretty simple:
If you run a design-focused meet up we’d love to help you out. For the next three months we’ll support our meet-ups per month by donating $250 to the running costs. It’s up to you how you spend it. Fancy giving your attendees some beer and pizza, or helping fund the travel costs of an out of town speaker?
How do you take advantage of this offer? Get in touch with Shopify's Keir Whitaker at firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your event and a good pitch for the project you would like to fund.
