We are a community of entrepreneurs, founders, and builders who come together once a month to be educated and inspired by some of the brightest minds our city has to offer. Startup Grind values are that: We believe in making friends, not LinkedIn connections. We believe in giving more than you take. We believe in helping others before helping yourself. We are truly passionate about helping founders, entrepreneurs and startups succeed.
