About this event

Join us in-person back in Brooklyn at The Yard: Gowanus for the August edition of Startup (Coffee) Grind on Wednesday, August 7

This midday gathering for early-stage founders and stakeholders is a chance to ditch your work-from-home routine and engage with fellow makers and builders.

Free to attend. Swing by anytime between 11:00am and 1:00pm to chat with peers over coffee and a bite to eat. ☕🍩

You'll have a chance to meet members of the Startup Grind team and other entrepreneurial connections. No agenda or speakers. Just casual coffee and conversation with peers to share insights, experiences, and strategies for building your idea. 💡

Our hosts at The Yard are offering a free day pass for attendees who want to stick around and get work done in the afternoon.

To get in the right mindset, read Andrew Yeung's recent piece: The Art of the Coffee Chat

And remember to register for our upcoming fireside chats with experienced founders and investors.
