- About Us
Startup Grind BCS is a Texas A&M University student-led Startup Grind X Chapter that bridges campus and community to the global startup scene. Startup Grind X is a 2018 spin-out from Startup Aggieland, where Startup Grind U launched in 2014. Since 2013, Startup Grind has grown to 500+ chapters worldwide. Startup Grind's motto: Make friends, not contacts. Startup Aggieland graduates Matt Lohstroh and Grant Weston serve as co-assistant directors in Bryan-College Station. The chapter hosts an average of six meetups annually. Events are free. No membership dues. Startup Grind BCS is open to 18 and older. Students on the leadership team qualify for the annual Startup Grind Global Conference in Silicon Valley by volunteering their time to host events for the local startup scene.
