Startup Grind Chengdu started its first event in January 2017. So far we have hosted more than 20 events with over 30 speakers from in and outside of China. Speakers include Steven Hoffman (Founders Space), Trevor Owens (Lean Startup Machine), Tim Luan (Innoway), Florian Bohnert (Mobike), Jean-Francois Vallee (Ubisoft), Sophie Yao (Fenox VC), Yves La Rose (EOS Nation) and Ricky Gu (Busines Big Data). We are a group of entrepreneurs, community builders and event managers and believe that everyone can and should make an impact. We want to gather Chengdu's and China's startup ecosystem and community and empower everyone to grow and create impact together. Our events are hosted monthly and always at different venues. We usually work with Co-Working Spaces, Incubators, Accelerators, Corporates and Innovation Hubs to host the events. By doing so, we are connecting the wider ecosystem together and act as independent hub to be the needed glue in the community.
