Michael Reid, Adelaide Chapter Co-Director

Michael runs Majoran Distillery, Adelaide's tech coworking space, which went from 5 members in the first month to over 50 members a year later and is still growing. Michael's first exposure to startups was entering the local Startup Weekend with a business idea that didn't take off, but Michael was hooked. He knew he wanted to be surrounded with startups, so he, along with two other guys, set out to open a tech coworking space which Adelaide was in desperate need of. Michael's drive and excitement about coworking and the startup life is shown throughout everything Michael is involved with, including Startup Grind.
