Yes, there are meetup events and networking events almost every night of the week you can go to. But StartupGrind is so much more than an event, it is a community that can help you along your entrepreneurial journey. We know starting a business is hard and our team is filled with entrepreneurs ourselves, so we are building Startup Grind Boston as an environment you can not only learn from and be inspired by our incredible speakers, but also learn from and support each at and between events.
Check out our events and be sure to ask about partnership, sponsorship, volunteer or collaborative opportunities with our community. If there is something we can do for you or help you with - please don't hesitate to reach out. Let's make the Startup Grind a little bit smoother for everyone.
