Welcome to Startup Grind Lisbon!

Startup Grind Lisbon is a community of entrepreneurs, creatives, innovators, and investors building an inclusive and progressive ecosystem out of Lisbon. We do this by exchanging experiences, supporting each other, learning, and growing together.

We enjoy being surrounded by people who want to add value, push for change, move things around, and are not afraid of breaking some stuff sometimes. Do you believe in the power of community to build a better future? Join us!

At SGLisbon, everyone has something to share, and everyone is welcome. Regardless of their background, gender, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, we look out for each other.

Being a startup founder is tough, but knowing other people going through the same pains, makes the journey more worthwhile. Here, you can share your ups and downs, you can grow and harness 'mass mutual resilience'.

Startup Grind’s mission is to educate, connect, and empower entrepreneurs. Our core values are:

- We believe in making friends, not contacts.

- We believe in giving, not taking.

- We believe in helping others before helping ourselves.
