Startup Grind is the world’s largest community of startups, founders, innovators, and creators. We bring like-minded yet diverse individuals together to connect, learn, teach, help, build, and belong. We do this daily through our local events, flagship conferences, startup program, partnerships, and online media + content - collectively reaching over 3.5 million individuals worldwide.

The Startup Grind Princeton Chapter promotes the NJ and regional startup ecosystem and holds fireside chats, workshops, pitch events, and parties. During the pandemic we hold virtual events.
