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 has ever had and we host monthly events and a couple of parties each year. Hope to meet you at an event soon!
