Startup Grind is the largest independent startup community, actively educating, inspiring, and connecting entrepreneurs globally in partnership with Google for Startups.
Through monthly fireside chats and other happenings, we help make local connections and establish a community that is built to support its members, from early stage founder to well-known investors.


• We believe in making friends, not contacts.

• We believe in giving, not taking.

• We believe in helping others before helping yourself.

The Oslo team are truly passionate about helping founders, entrepreneurs and startups succeed. We intend to make their startup journey less lonely, more connected and more memorable.
