About this event

You have been out of social touch recently too? Enough of that! August should be about fun no matter what. 
Get ready for some serious mingling, as this time we come to you with a new, doozie event. 

StartupGrind SPEED DATING - Reserve Your Spot Now!

Just show up on time with a prepared pitch and ask, have good fun and quality networking time and go home with a network
of friends (not contacts) from different ecosystems, along with potential follow up discussions scheduled in your calendar.

— Based on the data you fill in when registering, we’ll make sure you get a meeting with your perfect match. 


Rules? Simple! 

Participants will be split into pairs and meet 1:1 in separate virtual rooms for relaxed, fun, and personal chats. 
Each meeting is 10 mins. When the time is up, you’ll be automatically switched to a new partner!

For startups
Pitch your startup to a potential investor, meet founders doing similar things in other countries, 
discuss challenges you are facing, share your ask.

For Investors and Mentors
Meet some of the rising stars from each of the ecosystems, provide feedback, or share your story, decide whether there is a fit for follow up connections, and intros.



We have limited spots available, so make sure to register below, and tell us more about yourself here: https://forms.gle/S8vuDey7nDkJfWkq9

The event is supported by the UK Department for International Trade through the British Embassy in Yerevan.
