About this event

After a successful beta launch, we're adding FDR to our monthly repertoire and putting the "happy" back in "happy hour" -- without the eye-rolls of formal presentations, high-stakes pitches, or waiting to get approved. 🙄

Because networking events should be fun, especially on a Friday.

Join Startup Grind on Friday, July 12 at Urbanspace near Union Square for Founder Drinks Roundtable. We'll chat and laugh and maybe even solve for AGI (or at least be convinced that we have).

Urbanspace offers a variety of food options, seating areas, and a hidden outdoor beer garden. They've even got games like Jenga and chess if you're feeling competitive.


Whether you're an early-stage startup, a seasoned entrepreneur, or someone passionate about innovation, the Founder Drinks Roundtable provides a relaxed and inclusive environment to foster connections and celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit.
