Founded in Silicon Valley, we nurture startup ecosystems in 125 countries through local and international events and partnerships with organizations like Google for Startups. Our values are what set us apart. We believe in making friends not contacts, in giving not taking, and helping others before helping ourselves. These values are what continue to drive us in Dayton, and so many people around the world. Since 2015, the Startup Grind Dayton chapter has featured more than 30 successful local and national founders, innovators, educators, and investors who have shared lessons learned on the road to building great companies.
