Start up life gets difficult. Long hours and short money. But we wouldn't have it any other way. It's even harder to start up a company when you don't have connections to other people in your community who are traveling that path with you or have traversed the startup grind before.
Thank goodness there's Startup Grind. Startup Grind has three main objectives: Educate. Inspire. Connect.
Every month, we host events that feature a Q&A Session with a local entrepreneur. Our events also provide opportunities for fellow entrepreneurs to collide.
We all have our heads down. Let's get out and see the other cool things that are being done right in our own neck-of-the-woods.
