About this event

April 8th, presentation of the Startup Grind Barcelona book, written by our chapter director Àlex Rodríguez Bacardit, and the opening night of the Startup Grind Tech Conference 2019 at Antiga Fàbrica Estrella Damm.

Startup Grind is the biggest 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 60 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 opening keynote to present the Startup Grind Barcelona book by our chapter director Àlex Rodríguez Bacardit.

2. Then, we will host a panel about ethics in business, with Mar Alarcon (SocialCar), Cecilia Tham (Makers Of Barcelona) and Josh Feldberg (Feldberg Associates / Special advisor to British Government on Fake News)..

3. We will follow with a one-on-one fireside chat with Derek Andersen, CEO at Startup Grind and Bevy, the product he spun off to serve communities worldwide to talk about how to spin up a tech company from an international community.

4. 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!
