Google kicks off Sudo entrepreneur event

Google Australia announces a series of events for the Australian start-up community.

It's not an event that grants superuser privileges, but Google Australia has announced a series of start-up "do"s intended to help out wannabe entrepreneurs.

Google Australia engineering director Alan Noble said that the event series, called Google Sudo, was designed to fill a gap for start-up wisdom in Australia.

"Thousands of kilometres from Silicon Valley, connecting with the right people with the knowledge and capital can be difficult," he said.

The first event in the series will be held at Google Australia's offices in Sydney on 30 May, between 5pm and 7pm. Speakers on the panel for this event will be Alan Noble; former Googlers Mike Fox and Mike Knapp from Shoes of Prey; Angel investor Vivian Stewart; and venture capitalist Bill Bartee.

Google says that space is limited, and people wishing to attend should register their interest for a chance to attend.

"Over the next few months, we’ll be hosting free tutorials, events and Hangouts on Google+ that bring together successful entrepreneurs, angel investors, VCs and others who will share their stories and be generous with insights and advice to the Aussie startup community, " wrote Noble.
