Startup Grind - Global Directors View in browser
 After 6 long weeks of training we are so thrilled to announce our newest class of cohort graduates! Please give a warm welcome to our new Chapter Directors! 


Director Portal
Our mission this year is to support and up-skill you as Chapter Directors and Co-Directors and support you in your journey as a Chapter Director and in your professional careers. Our theme, as a community team for this year is R.A.I.S.E, which is an acronym for Resilient, Aspiring, Impactful, Steadfast, Empowered. We ultimately want to develop and connect motivated startup ecosystem champions through mentorship and educational opportunities to be a leader in the world’s largest startup community. One way we are doing this is through the Community Growth Curve. The first phase of this being the launch of the Director Portal.
Here is what you can expect to see in the recently launched Director Portal:
- Director Badges recognizing your awards and achievements
- Become a Certified Chapter Director and complete the Certification Course
- New courses being added to up-level your skills professionally
- A Chapter Director directory where you can see what other Directors are in the community their area of expertise
