What is Startup Grind Memphis?
Startup Grind Memphis is local chapter of Startup Grind, powered by Google for Entrepreneurs. Each month, Startup Grind Memphis hosts an event where entrepreneurs can connect and be inspired! This is not your average networking event! Looking for ways to connect with others? This is the place to be! Want to meet other entrepreneurs? This is the ticket! Meet founders across the city and hear their stories! Ask question, make connections, and share your journey with others!
We believe in making friends, not contacts. We believe in giving, not taking. We believe in helping others before helping yourself. We are truly passionate about helping founders, entrepreneurs and startups succeed. We intend to make their startup journey less lonely, more connected and more memorable.
