Strathclyde University


Startup Grind is the largest independent startup community, actively educating, inspiring, and connecting more than 2,000,000 entrepreneurs in over 600 chapters. At Startup Grind Strathclyde, we aim to inspire the next generation of aspiring entrepreneurs with the startup stories and workshops targeted at getting business ideas off the ground.

As with every chapter...

- We believe in making friends, not contacts.

- We believe in giving, not taking.

- We believe in helping others before helping yourself.

Events run monthly throughout the university year, with previous events featuring up-and-coming founders like Becky Pick of Pick Protection and Kieran Aitken of Orbit Incubator, as well as established founders and investors such as Ian Ritchie CBE and Nick Kuenssberg OBE.  

If you're keen to get involved in the Scottish entrepreneurial ecosystem (to meet startups, get involved in sponsorship or to join the team here at Startup Grind), this is the place to do it. Contact us here or at any of our social media channels. 

Whether you're a student, lecturer or already established entrepreneur, there's always a place for you here at this Startup Grind chapter!

Hope to see you at the next event.
