Breaking down the walls of entrepreneurship one connection at a time. Meet founders, influencers, and leaders in the city! A multi-faceted event series that connects professionals, educates aspiring founders and inspires the next generation of innovators.

You get to ask the questions that matter to you the most and speak to them directly!

 Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

After the 2019 Global Conference, Startup Grind HQ formed the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Steering Committee (DEI). The DEI committee is tasked with developing initiatives, programming, and identifying opportunities around the topics of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The DEI committee aims to help chapter directors understand how to incorporate diversity and inclusiveness in local chapter events to help foster a more equitable startup ecosystem. Through education and empowerment, we strive to improve how the organizational culture surrounding issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion are embraced and communicated to global partners and stakeholders.

Join the DEI community to explore topics of diversity, equity, and inclusion from viewpoint of our chapter directors and experts.  Join the community at www.startupgrind.com/diversity-equity-and-inclusion/ for the latest events and information.
