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.
Alessandro is a Business Analyst totally devoted to the Startup Galaxy. He loves innovation and entrepreneurship as he thinks they are the new forms of self-expression. Creativity is his philosophy and he believes it is the key to get every job done. He decided to apply for the Rome Chapter Director position because he wants to play a major role in bridging the gap between the Italian eco-system and the american one. In his opinion Startup Grind is a Must-catch train.
