Startup Grind is a global startup community designed to educate, inspire, and connect entrepreneurs. It is powered by Google for 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 Startup Grind was founded in Palo Alto, California, our extended network of Startup Grind chapters are located around the world. Start a Chapter in your city or school!
We believe in making friends, not contacts. We believe in giving, not taking. We believe in helping others before helping yourself. 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.
Boise is not the next Silicon Valley, Seattle or Portland. It is different, geographically and culturally, which makes what starters have in Idaho's capital city very special.
Boise is a community of people who genuinely care about helping each other succeed and investing in one another. Unlike major metros, it's 20 minutes to anywhere in the valley; that's a luxury most metros don't enjoy.
Idaho has agricultural roots that have gifted a pragmatic, iron resolve to push through challenges and pursue dreams. Entrepreneurs throughout the Treasure Valley work as hard as any other area in the country, but they also enjoy a sense of balance that often gets lost elsewhere.
Part of the allure of the Boise area is the outdoor lifestyle. Minutes from the pristinely preserved foothills, Bogus Basin Ski Resort and whitewater backcountry, are residents work to keep their way of life in balance with ambitions.

Life as a college student is unlike anything else: one day you may feel like you’re vacationing at an all-inclusive resort, while the next day may be a whirlwind of stress and chaos caused by a perfect storm of schoolwork, homesickness, relationship drama, and anxiety about the future.
A shot of what? A shot of knowledge, a shot at the big time, a shot of adrenaline, a shot of magical unicorn tears?
