We are experiencing unprecedented times. Unemployment is expected to reach levels not seen since the great depression. Startups are failing left and right. Economic uncertainty has gripped the globe while a catastrophic global recession is all but guaranteed.
It is why we are proud to support this incredible event along with many other Startup Grind Chapters around the world to bring everyone to learn from Brad Feld as the summer closing event. Brad has accumulated decades of experience building and funding startups, mentoring and training founders as well as community builders. His insights are priceless and very much needed during these disrupted and turbulent times. If you are involved in a Startup Ecosystem in any capacity, engaged in entrepreneurship or are considering becoming an entrepreneur, you can't afford to miss this event.
