The resources and opportunities we received then and are continuing to receive today - potential investors, new customers, brand recognition - as part of our participation in Startup Grind has been invaluable.

Adam Harris - Packlane 2018 Startup Program Winner (Global)

The Startup Program gave us a chance to pitch to the largest audience we have ever had both in quantity and quality. Even more importantly, it helped us prepare for this and our future pitches with amazing experts and introduced us to a new community of great companies. I would greatly recommend it to all early stage companies.

Mikhail Dubov - Co-Founder & CEO, Chattermill 2018 Startup Program Winner (Europe)

It was an amazing event with the most impressive lineup of speakers I’ve ever seen. And the caliber of the startup companies in the Growth stage was incredibly high. Startup Grind definitely filled a void for startups like us who are on their way to growth stage and gave us a great platform to meet with investors, to meet and listen to other startup founders, and be introduced to new opportunities with partners.
