Besides having the greatest sports team in the US, Boston is also home to one of the fastest-growing startup ecosystems in the world. With a community of talent coming from MIT, Harvard, BU, BC, Babson, Brandeis, Hult, Northeastern, and dozens of other great academic institutions in combination with biotech research coming out of the major hospital-universities ecosystem and corporate technology firms, new teams are forming every day to innovate the startups of tomorrow. Boston is home to successful startups turned corporations such as TripAdvisor, DraftKings,, GasBuddy, Carbonite, New Balance and many more and boasts a strong support ecosystem with accelerators such as MassChallenge and TechStars and dozens of co-working and collaborative spaces around the city. 

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.
