Startup Grind Marin. This Is Really Happening.

***This post was written by Dave Wamsley founder at GravityEight and the Marin chapter director***

Welcome to Startup Grind Marin, an exciting new North-Bay counterpart to Startup Grind Silicon Valley and San Francisco.

Marin, California is the ideal location for Startup Grind to launch another discussion series and tech blog.  Located just minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin is home to some of the Bay Area’s top talent.  Notable success stories include George Lucas and his Skywalker Ranch, AutoDesk, and the hot internet startup GlassDoor.  CEOs, venture capitalists, designers, developers, artists, and entrepreneurs of every stripe can be found in the corridor that runs from the houseboats of Sausalito to the coastal waters of Bodega Bay. Marin also attracts people from around the world who come to see the 250 ft tall redwoods of Muir Woods (pictured above), the annual Dipsea Race, or simply to experience first hand the spiritual center of Marin County, the 2574 ft. Mount Tamalpais.

Startup Grind Marin invites you to join us at our inaugural event on Thursday, April 26th, at the offices of Resolution Remedies, 1000 4th St., Suite 800 (8th floor penthouse), San Rafael, CA.  Our guest speaker will be Michael Tchong.  He is the founder of five start-ups, including MacWEEK, CyberAtlas and ICONOCAST and has worked at such prestigious ad agencies as DDB and Chiat/Day.  A change management consultant, Michael inspires and motivates audiences by exploring innovative solutions that leverage newly emerging trends.  He is also the author of Social Engagement Marketing, an easy-to-navigate guide to the world of social media, and his latest startup, Social Revolution aims to reinvent America by crowdsourcing innovative solutions.

Event networking starts at 6:00 PM and the video-taped fireside chat will begin at 7:00PM sharp.  Visit our event page to register soon, as seating is limited for this special event.
