Startup Grind is the most significant community of entrepreneurs, in partnership with Google for Startups. Our mission is to help every entrepreneur in the world. We do so by hosting a monthly recurring event and inspiring, educating and connecting entrepreneurs. The Barcelona chapter was granted the "Best Chapter of the Year" award in 2016, with the average assistance of +130 attendees per event, having held over 50 events since April 2014 and helping local entrepreneurs to take their projects to the next level.
The event will go as follows:
1. First, we have an open mic session where any attendee is free to speak up his mind or ask for a piece of advice from the community and receive feedback.
2. Then, the fireside chat interview, hosted by our Chapter Director Àlex Rodríguez Bacardit.
3. And last but not least, we host a networking session in which attendees talk to each other freely over some beers and delicious empanadas. There's no Startup Grind where you don't leave with new friends and exciting connections.
Follow #SGBCN; the official Startup Grind Barcelona hashtag. See you there and happy grinding!
