About this event


This event was inspired by a conversation with a local cafe here in Edmonton AB. Working 6 days a week to support the business, and a child at home, it can be difficult to go out and meet others in similar or complementary businesses. It is through those connections that you can learn how to better your own business and support each other as friends/colleagues rather than competition.

An Entrepreneur's Christmas Tale is FREE and open to everyone interested in enjoying the holidays, building professional relationships, and swapping tales about this past year. We have simply taken it one step further to personally invite as many of the food/beverage industry as we can to give the gift of meeting everyone new and old in their industry over the course of one night, rather than over a couple of months. 


We invite you to focus on the person in front of you and have a real conversation. 

Rather than feeling as though you need to meet everyone, if you choose to leave your information at the front, we will email it to everyone else on the list so that you can connect after the event. 

*This information will only be shared to those who have agreed to send and receive it by signing up on the list. 


Please support the MATCH - Eatery and Public House by purchasing a meal or drink from their wonderful menu. 


As a way to raise money to help fund our monthly fireside chats with local entrepreneurs we will be holding a silent auction. These funds will help us keep tickets free and open to more people interested in starting or growing their own business. Please let us know if you are willing to participate and donate an item to the silent auction.

*Items may be bundled into gift baskets to form a larger prize.


Startup Grind is the largest independent startup community, actively educating, inspiring, and connecting more than 1,000,000 entrepreneurs in over 365 cities. The cornerstone of our global community are monthly events featuring successful local founders, innovators, educators and investors who share lessons learned on the road to building great companies. We are in partnership with Google for Startups.

In Edmonton, we have focus on creating consistent, monthly events for local entrepreneurs to come and meet up, connect and learn from each other. Our vision is to connect Edmonton's vibrant startup and business community to the global Startup Grind platform. By doing this, we want to showcase why Edmonton is and continues to be a great place to call home, for both your family and your business.

One key theme throughout our events is "Edmonton is Home".

While Startup Grind is global, we are new to the Edmonton area. Building this brand reputation one event at a time, we continue to grow our audience, reach and connections. Through the support of local businesses we are able to keep the tickets free and accessible to all.

Our Values

  • Give don't take.
  • Help other before you yourself.
  • Make friends not contacts.
