At Startup Grind Aberdeen, we aim to support and connect founders and entrepreneurial people to the Scottish startup ecosystem.

We run monthly hybrid fireside chat events as part of the global Startup Grind network for entrepreneurs - active in 600+ chapters in 125+ countries around the world!

As with every chapter...

- We believe in making friends, not contacts.

- We believe in giving, not taking.

- We believe in helping others before helping yourself.

Events have previously feature our Dr Rotimi Alabi (RABMicrofluidics) and Eve Wildman (RIPCELL) at our high flying alumni series bringing together our wonderful universities in Aberdeen together, and serial entrepreneur Beena Sharma from CCU International. 

We work closely with our brilliant team in Edinburgh and Glasgow  - under the umbrella of Startup Grind Scotland.

If you're keen to get involved in the Scottish entrepreneurial ecosystem (to meet startups, get involved in sponsorship or to join the team here at Startup Grind), this is the place to do it. Contact us here or at any of our social media channels.
