This month we'll be at Venture Cafe at the Summit School!

About this event

This month Startup Grind will take place at Venture Cafe for Youth/Children day at the Summit School. 

What can we learn from children that can help our businesses?

Kids have amazing imaginations, that help to craft great stories and Juan Garzon knows the importance of storytelling and how you can tie that into your business strategy to help it grow. 

Juan Garzon is Messaging Strategist & Communications Consultant at The Garzon Company. His company helps helps entrepreneurs and organizations craft clear and compelling stories to attract their ideal clients and inspire them to take action. They do this through audience insight mapping, brand strategy, and sales communications consulting.

Clients include StoneLaurel, Tortal, AllFit, White Knight Engineered Products, Acrowire, Wyndham Financial, Allergy Guardian, Moving Ideas, The Norman Group, and WebScout.

Juan is also the director of Start Charlotte, the upcoming digital hub for the Charlotte startup community. They feature stories, news, events, and resources of interest to local entrepreneurs.

Join us at a special Startup Grind series to learn how "story" can help you grow your business and how you can apply the hero journey to reframe your target audience's mindset for a higher rate of conversion success.


This month we'll be moving our Startup Grind from Tuesday to Thursday and our location will be at the Summit School. It will not be held at Flywheel as usual. We will have a special series in conjunction with Venture Cafe Winston Salem.
