Silicon Valley, San Francisco Bay Area



Welcome to the original Startup Grind Chapter established in February 2009 when nine people showed up in Mountain View California to brainstorm, hang out, and eat cheap pizza. This Chapter has hosted some of the best entrepreneurs Silicon Valley and the Bay Area has ever had. We host 1-2 events per month, ranging across all industries and topics. All our events are open to all, so we hope you'll join us.
