About this event

It’s official! Startup Grind Montreal is back and our very first event for 2017 is coming up!

And who will we be putting to the grind to get entrepreneurial insights, ideas and inspiration? Actor, investor and Menchies franchisee David Lipper!

Born and raised in Montreal, David Lipper set out to succeed as an actor, and that’s just what happened. With a career spanning across film, TV and theatre, from comedy to drama, and roles as heroes, villains and underdogs, David has acted in over 45 movies and series and has been in over 200 TV episodes, appearing in shows like Full House and Frequency

A born entrepreneur, he's also a successful real estate investor and franchisee of Menchies, an award-winning franchise with over 2000 stores globally, which has become the celebrity choice for frozen yogurt, attracting the likes of Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, and the Kardashians. When he opened his first shop in LA, people began lining up immediately to experience the spot’s unique and delicious approach to frozen yoghurt.

David also owns Studio X, a micro gym in Montreal that merges the latest in technology with the best workout practices to give clients the benefits of a two-hour workout in just 20 minutes. Beat that!

Join us for an evening of memorable connections and entrepreneurial insights, along with food and drink!
