Startup Membership Now FREE for Vetted Startups!
We’ve been making some changes over the past four months (based on feedback from many of you + the startups) and starting today we’ve decided to make the Startup Membership FREE for vetted startups :-)
Hence effectively immediately, any startup that applies for the membership via your personal referral link and gets accepted by our vetting team, will get free access to our membership (not just 3/12 months that were offered initially). Additionally, the startups will no longer need to enter card details to get access!
For those that have already applied via your referral and gotten accepted, we will email them directly and let them know of the change.
We hope that you are now able to offer this once again to your startups to apply and get access to a ton of curated support from Startup Grind. You can continue to refer startups using either of your referral links found in this document.

Student Program Update
Our new Student Program is officially here! We’ve partnered up with Blackstone Launchpad, EO, and .COM to create a community just for students. Students will get access to the resources that will take their entrepreneurship to the next level. For more information about our Student Program, check out the Director’s Guide. 

Welcome H2-2020 Cohort + Update
We just concluded our second cohort and we look forward to welcoming all of our new Chapter Directors to our community. Please connect with our new cohort members, introduce yourself, share with them your insights and learnings. 

Cross-Promoting Update
One of your goals as Chapter Director is to keep your local Chapter engaged by delivering education, inspiration, and opportunities to connect. If your Chapter goes more than 90 days without hosting an event your Chapter is considered inactive. In hopes to keep your local community engaged HQ will utilize your Chapter to share and cross-promote our events with top speakers to help keep your local ecosystems engaged.
