About

We are 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 live the following core values: • We give first, don’t take. Help others before ourselves. Make friends and collaborative relationships, not just contacts. • Do one thing each day that enriches another's life. • We are open and believe in the free exchange of information in all our endeavors. • Everyone is welcome, has something to contribute, and an important role to play. • We are a community of winners. We do not believe in zero-sum games. • FAILURE is not part of our vocabulary. • We constantly challenge and disrupt the status quo. We purposely think differently. We always seek opportunities to deliver the greatest possible value in everything we do. value. This is how we Grind!
