About this event

One big reason to attend: Sharing knowledge as an entrepreneur is key - regardless of what stage you are at in your journey. Startup Grind brings everyone together in a low-key environment where all ideas are welcome, you’re a part of the global startup community and you have the ability to connect and learn from several heavy hitters in the scene.

Every month we invite you to better understand and to embrace Startup Grind’s Values:

Give First (before you ask)

Make Friends (not just contacts)

Help Others (before you help yourself)

Join us this month as we host Mark Sham.

Mark Sham is the founder and CEO of Suits & Sneakers which aims to disrupt the education landscape in South Africa at first and then abroad. Mark’s philosophy centres around the idea that these days, YouTube, podcasts and the internet has democratised education just like WhatsApp and Skype democratised communication. For us to be truly ready for the future, we need a balance between formal and informal education; suits and sneakers.

Mark has a background in marketing but his entrepreneurial spirit and natural curiosity led him to start a host of other businesses across a variety of industries until he found his true passion in the form of Suits & Sneakers in 2015.

Suits & Sneakers currently operates in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban but will be looking to operate nationwide by 2019. Suits & Sneakers is also about to open a London office in 2019 which is the first step to becoming a global company.
