About this event

All startups who have launched, planning to launch, probably should launch, dreaming of launching, contemplating to launch, wondering if they should launch, wishing they actually had a startup to launch are invited to THE 3rd Annual Startup Grind Launch Party.


How it works...

The Startups. We will give 7-10 startup founders the mic for 3-minutes so they can tell the world about the problem they solve, their solution, their secret sauce, the market opportunity, their traction, and their team. There will be investors, so be prepared to answer questions!

The Investors. In the room, we will have 2-3 special guest judges there to give insights and feedback on each pitch. They will help founders understand what worked, what could be done better and what it takes to land an investment from an investor like them.

Everyone Else. You play a huge role in this. You get to vote on the startup you liked the best and pick the winner.

The Winning Startup. Not only does the winner earn street cred and pride from winning Startup Grind's 2019 Summer Launch, but they will also win some great tools to help their business.
