OUR MISSION

To educate, inspire & connect area entrepreneurs.

OUR VALUES

Help others before we help ourselves, give before we take, make friends not contacts.

ABOUT OUR CHAPTER

Founded in May 2021, the Marquette chapter of Startup Grind acts as the connective tissue not only in our local region but as a central ecosystem contributor for the Upper Peninsula and downstate Michigan.

As such, we are here for those who are trying to navigate the ever-shifting landscape and get access to great resources in order to help you in your endeavors. 

ABOUT OUR ECOSYSTEM

'Yoopers' (People who live in the Upper Peninsula)  are some of the most resilient and helpful people you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. Our local region consists of public and private organizations, and nonprofits working relentlessly to ensure the entrepreneurial and startup ecosystem in the Upper Peninsula is well supported for current and future projects.

Whether you're in the ideation stage, fundraising, looking for talent, or whatever stage of your endeavor, there's some incredible support available.

Need help? Don't be a stranger and reach out!
