Startup Grind Lansing serves as a vital hub in Michigan's entrepreneurial ecosystem, providing a local connection to the world’s largest community of startups, founders, innovators, and creators.

At the heart of our Lansing chapter is a strong set of values centered on building genuine relationships and contributing positively to the community. We believe in making friends, not contacts. We believe in giving, not taking. And, we believe in helping others before helping ourselves.

Our events range from intimate Fireside Chats featuring startup success stories to Startup (Coffee) Grind Events in partnership with mConnexions, designed to deepen conversations over morning coffee. We also host Ask Me Anything Expert Panels, giving our community free rein to probe into various aspects of business growth and scalability, from investor criteria to marketing strategies to implementation of AI and more.

What distinguishes Startup Grind Lansing is our unparalleled access to global resources, including venture capitalists and high-profile founders, along with specialized media partnerships. Join us as we work together to make the startup journey less isolating and more empowering!
