Startup Grind hosts events in over 500 cities and 120+ countries around the world, plus a flagship Global Conference every year in Silicon Valley. At the local level, our chapter teams bring together their communities of early-stage startup teams, entrepreneurs, creators, and tech enthusiasts every month for impactful networking, education, and inspiration. All of our speakers generously donate their time to educate and give back to this community.


Why should you speak?

A Startup Grind event isn't an opportunity to pitch or promote your company. It's a time for an experienced founder, CEO, investor, or thought leader to educate and connect with our community as they navigate the challenges of building a company.


What comes from a Startup Grind speaking opportunity?

Every Startup Grind event is recorded with full audio and video for showcasing on our local and global YouTube channels. You may use the video and audio collateral for promotion and media in the future; though Startup Grind reserves all rights to the content for commercial purposes. The Global Conference mainstage is also live-streamed to thousands of virtual attendees across the globe.
