About this event

A summit for startups weathering the storm.

The startup grind is all about rising against adversity, challenging and motivating your team to innovate and persevere, finding the upside of downturns - there is no better time to put these into practice. We’re hosting an event to help guide you along the way.

This summit will bring the startup community together for impactful sessions around weathering the startup storm. Experts will speak about managing cash flow and finances, mental health, productivity, and the “Great Resignation”. VC’s will give a glimpse into the venture landscape for startups right now, plus we’ll touch on DAO’s and other opportunities for funding. In addition to content built to help support startup teams, you’ll be in the company of thousands of others who are going through something similar.

Come for content, meet someone who you can help or who can help you. We hope to see you there.
