{ opencoffee leeds is now… LSxCafé

Since June 2007, OpenCoffee and LSxCafé have been Leeds' most popular monthly meetups for those working and playing in the tech, media, startup, creative & digital arena, attracting designers, developers, entrepreneurs, researchers, investors, technologists and VCs.

OpenCoffee 4th Birthday

This month, we'll be joined by Sarah Hartley, cofounder of Contributoria, a member-supported, crowdfunding, collaborative writing platform for journalists. We'll also be joined by Dean Vipond, the app's designer.. This month's LSxCafé will be again kindly hosted by The Tetley.
