You’ve built a powerful startup initiative, and you’re looking for a way to reach every entrepreneur in the world. Like, yesterday. Your mission is to help entrepreneurs and technologists build better companies. For your project to take over, you’ll have to compel founders to use your product, investors to advocate it to their portfolio companies, and community builders to promote it with their audience. That’s a bold plan. You tried paid ads but most founders are building, not wasting time on Facebook - and even those who click aren’t converting well. Why?

Founders follow the advice of other founders.

To be credible and authoritative, your message has to come from one entrepreneur to another. And if you’re going to share your message with the world, you’re going to need a whole lot of founders. Here’s where our global Startup Grind team comes in. We’ve helped millions of founders since 2008, and mentor over 170,000 each month through events, content, and partnerships.

Startup Grind reaches founders, investors, and community builders in over 250 cities in 100 countries single every month.

We’ve helped Google for Entrepreneurs extend its reach to Iran, Palestine, and China.

We attracted hundreds of global applicants to the 43North business competition in Buffalo, NY.

We collected thousands of data points from global entrepreneurs for the Kauffman Foundation entrepreneurship study.

Now it’s your turn. Our team won’t just share your story. We’ll help you perfect it to connect and inspire entrepreneurs in person, online, and through special custom projects - like Startup Grind’s university program with the Thurgood Marshall Foundation. Tell us your goals below and let’s get started.
