First of all, What is Startup Grind?

It’s a global startup community powered by Google for Entrepreneurs that’s designed to educate, inspire, and connect entrepreneurs. We host monthly events in 250 cities and 100 countries featuring successful local founders, innovators, educators and investors who share personal stories and lessons learned on the road to building great companies.

Startup Grind is a connected online and offline network of vibrant startup communities to help fuel innovation, economic growth and prosperity at the local level. While the organization was founded in Palo Alto, California, our extended network of Startup Grind chapters are located around the world.

We subscribe to a unique set of values-

We believe in making friends, not contacts, and in giving, not taking. We believe in helping others before helping ourselves. We are truly passionate about helping founders, entrepreneurs and startups succeed! We intend to make their startup journey less lonely, more connected and more memorable.
