Friend Theory family is growing and we can only express our excitement with one word: WOW. Traveling for free is becoming a reality!

Friend Theory founders became judges at The University of Melbourne for a day!

“Participants provided solutions ranged from integrating the Blockchain on Friend Theory platform to shifting target markets. We sensed that every team had invested a lot of effort into their presentation, making it very tough to ultimately select a single winner”

One of the best perks of studying in South East Asia is the travel opportunities you have all around that region. You can fly to Thailand and party 24/7, you can go to the Philippines and chill on world class beaches or you can go to Bali and catch some of the best waves in the world – all you need to do is to book a low cost flight ticket and you’re sorted.

The story of 3 young and international entrepreneurs in Australia – Friend Theory

Young, international and with no money – pretty tricky characteristics to have as founders of a tech project. The Friend Theory founders share how the experience has been so far as entrepreneurs in Australia!
