Coffee, Games, and Friends

Dec 3, 2019, 1:30 – 3:00 PM

Tea + Victory, 2030 EAST T.C. JESTER, Houston, 77008

We tested a theory this July. It was about how to give us all a time and place to extend our connections and explore getting to know each other personally (that making friends part that can sometimes elude us). We got together in the morning, had coffee and played this fun and cool game together (laughing hysterically). See more...

In-person event

About this event

Our goal was to test an idea of how we could create a fun environment where everyone who attended Startup Grind events could benefit from our "Make Friends, not contacts" values.

It Worked!!!!!!!!!!!

Successful founders like Paul Kwiatkowski, Group Raise and Derek Anderson, Startup Grind have shared over and over in our fire-side chats how finding the best talent to work with came from BOTH working on small projects to socializing together.

RSVP and Join Us!
