Startup Grind is an intimate fireside chat with entrepreneurs from our community. These chats are a great way for fellow entrepreneurs to learn from an entrepreneur's journey, best practices, and prove to be a more candid look at what entrepreneurship means. We believe that storytelling is an essential piece of growth and Kiera's story is important for all, including fellow entrepreneurs who may not see themselves represented in the current ecosystem. Drinks and food will be provided!
