3beards was a small London-based team of passionate people who supported the local and global startup community with regular, meaningful events.

Five years on the startup scene had grown and matured, and so the question whether all of 3beards activities were still relevant, had to be asked. The decision was made to activate a pivot of sorts and focus our energy on two of our main projects:
Unicorn Hunt 🦄 and Silicon Drinkabout 🍻

A magical beast of a job board

Unicorn Hunt is our response to the increasing need for tech talent. We want to help companies find great talent, and help talent find roles in which they will thrive.

Join a global community

Silicon Drinkabout is a global community of startups powered by local events. Established in London, 2012, the Friday meet up now takes place in over 20 cities around the world.

The other stuff we did

Monthly product demos for early-stage startups to get honest, realtime feedback from the community.

Watch all the demos!

A series of conversations with high profile entrepreneurs, founders, VCs and generally epic people, designed to stimulate, motivate and inspire.

Watch all the talks!

From Art Hacks to Alice In Wonderland, each Digital Sizzle event was unique. The biggest, barmiest, BBQ-iest 3beards events.

The 3beards crew

It takes a lot to craft meaningful and enjoyable events and it requires a range of fine skill to make it happen. Here are the dedicated, passionate, bearded and non-bearded people behind the 3beards brand. They are responsible for all the mischief and the awesomeness you might have been lucky enough to have witnessed.
