About this event


This Summer, several Startup Grind chapters come together for the first time on VirBELA virtual platform! We will be hosting a series all summer long, highlighting interesting business stories, founders, and startups.

The Startup Grind Summer Series kicks off with an insightful fireside chat with sports tech pro, Jason Robinson (CEO of Playbook Five), moderated by Startup Grind Hollywood Director, Jameela Jackson (Founder of Hustle x Glow). This will be a thought-provoking conversation about how Black entrepreneurs can move forward and thrive in the climate of today's life-changing pandemic and heightened racial injustice.
