About this event

Join us in-person at The Yard: Columbus Circle for the January edition of Startup (Coffee) Grind on Tuesday, Jan 23

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

Free to attend. Swing by anytime between 11:00am and 1:00pm to chat with peers and have a coffee and maybe a bite to eat. The donuts last time were a big hit. 🍩

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

You'll have a chance to meet members of the Startup Grind team and other entrepreneurial connections that may just save you from yet another Zoom call. No cringe-worthy elevator pitches or overused startup jargon. Just casual coffee and conversation.

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.
