This is the Community group for Startup Grind Scotland. We run monthly hybrid fireside chat events as part of the global Startup Grind network for entrepreneurs - active in 600+ chapters in 125+ countries around the world!

As with every chapter...

- We believe in making friends, not contacts.

- We believe in giving, not taking.

- We believe in helping others before helping yourself.

We work closely with our close neighbours Startup Grind Glasgow, and Startup Grind Aberdeen under the umbrella of Startup Grind Scotland.

If you're keen to get involved in the Scottish entrepreneurial ecosystem (to meet startups, get involved in sponsorship or to join the team here at Startup Grind), this is the place to do it. Contact us here or via any of our social media platforms.

We hope to see you at our next event.

Start your own Startup Grind Chapter in Scotland!

Running a Startup Grind Chapter in your city or university can be one of the most rewarding experiences in your personal and professional career. 

It is of course not easy, but we equip you with the tools, resources, knowledge and support network to help you build a successful local Startup Grind Chapter.

In-Person Event

Acquired by Meta, Building Teams in Silicon Valley, & Back for Startup #2

As we race into the end of Feb, we couldn't ask for a better speaker than Varun Nair. Varun has an unbelievable set of experiences. He sold his first startup Two Big Ears to Facebook (now Meta) back in 2016. After 4 years at Meta leading AR/VR Audio Software in the Bay Area, CA, he's back with his 2nd startup, AI-powered That Works. Believe us when we say that this will sell out fast. RSVP now!
