We are not just for startups. We're here for all entrepreneurs. 

We're a community of creative and innovative people who are passionate about entrepreneurship. We believe that the strongest foundation for growing phenomenally successful businesses starts with a strong community that educates, inspires, connects, and supports one another. 

We are a community of startups, early-stage, high growth companies, small, medium, and large businesses regardless of industry or market, investors, educators, influencers, and the business you’ve been planning but haven’t started yet!

Our core values and guiding principles 

                 Do one thing that enriches someone’s life every day.

                 >  Give first, don’t take. Help others before ourselves. Make friends, not just contacts.

                 >  Practice honesty, openness, and the free exchange of information.

                 >  We are inclusive and practice diversity. Everyone is welcome, has something to contribute, and an important role to play.

                 >  Collaborate to create the greatest opportunities for all, don’t play zero-sum games.

                 >  Challenge and disrupt the status quo, think differently, find ways through problems. 

This is how we Grind!

So, what's in it for you?

                > practical, real-world education you won't find anywhere else.

                > Inspiration from other successful founders and businesses.

                >  Friendships, partnerships, collaborative opportunities. We don't just collect business cards or play zero-sum games.
