About this event

Startup Grind is a global startup community designed to educate, inspire, and connect entrepreneurs. We do so by hosting a monthly recurring event. 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 100 editions since April 2014 and helping local entrepreneurs to take their projects to the next level.

This event will take place this time at the premises of TravelPerk. We'll host Ross McNairn, Chief Product and Technology Officer at TravelPerk, to talk about AI, technology, startups, and venture. A qualified lawyer, software engineer & entrepreneur, Ross sold his first startup to Skyscanner. Prior to joining TravelPerk, Ross led Letgo's product engineering organization. During his tenure, Letgo became a unicorn, raising over $800 million with Ross at the helm.

The event will go as follows:

1. 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. A fireside chat interview with Ross McNairn hosted by our Chapter Director Àlex Rodríguez Bacardit.

3. 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.

*Note: all our events are conducted in English and do not offer refunds. If you need an invoice email us at after buying the ticket. We do not sell tickets at the door. All tickets must be purchased online

See you there and happy grinding!
