Startup Grind is a global startup community designed to educate, inspire, and connect entrepreneurs. It is powered by Google for Entrepreneurs. We host monthly events in 250 cities and 100 countries featuring successful local founders, innovators, educators and investors who share personal stories and lessons learned on the road to building great companies.
Startup Grind is a connected online and offline network of vibrant startup communities to help fuel innovation, economic growth and prosperity at the local level. While Startup Grind was founded in Palo Alto, California, our extended network of Startup Grind chapters are located around the world. Start a Chapter in your city or school!
We believe in making friends, not contacts. We believe in giving, not taking. We believe in helping others before helping yourself. We are truly passionate about helping founders, entrepreneurs and startups succeed. We intend to make their startup journey less lonely, more connected and more memorable.
My passions include startups, data science, and coffee.

As an angel investor to technology entrepreneurs for years, I saw first-hand the entrepreneur's need for guidance, advice and support on common issues all independent workers face- from how to make more sales to how to running a small business efficiently. This is how Margoe was born. I attended Binghamton University for my B.A. in Psychology and also my M.B.A. I started my career in media sales and management at NBC, SONY and iHeart Media. I also was founding General Manager for the first children's radio station in NYC, pre-radio Disney. I live in Bucks County with my wife and son Samuel. I feel privileged being part of the Startup Grind Princeton team's mission of transferring the wisdom shared from our Speakers to our community's aspiring entrepreneurs who yearn for meaningful lessons.
Today it is our pleasure to announce that Startup Grind - the global startup community designed to educate, inspire, and connect entrepreneurs - is coming to Princeton, NJ. This is an exciting development not only for Princeton entrepreneurs, but also those across New Jersey.
