Startup Grind  Stellenbosch operates in the university town in the Western Cape province. Stellenbosch is surrounded by the vineyards of the Cape Winelands and the mountainous nature reserves of Jonkershoek and Simonsberg.  The town's oak-shaded streets are lined with cafes, boutiques and art galleries. Cape Dutch architecture gives a sense of South Africa's Dutch colonial history, as do the Village Museum's period houses and gardens. 

Startup Grind is the world’s largest community of startups, founders, innovators, and creators. We host a lot of events, but more than that Startup Grind is a community. We bring like-minded yet diverse individuals together to connect, learn, teach, help, build, and belong. We do this daily through our local events, flagship conferences, startup program, and online media + content – collectively reaching over 3.5 million individuals worldwide.

Stellenbosch is also a tech savvy town full of innovators. Together with our partners we are creating an extraordinary ecosystem for entrepreneurs to succeed and rival the best in the world. It is here we created a community of entrepreneurs, innovators alike. Feel free to join our community and be part of something truly special.
