Help is the currency of these times.

I get asked why I decided to get involved with Startup Grind and lead the chapter in Columbus. I typically echo Startup Grind's mission and values, which you can get to know if you visit the Home or About Us pages of the site. You have probably already been there if you've made it to this post. As I thought more about what happens at Startup Grind events and at our Global Conference, I can sum it up as people helping people. Of course people helping people isn't fundamentally a new concept. And maybe the idea of help being the currency of these times isn't new either. It doesn't matter if it is new. It just matters that it matters. And it matters to the Startup Grind family.
