What's up, Varanasi Fam!

Startup Grind is the world's largest startup community strives to help the entrepreneurs, founders and startups succeed by actively educating, inspiring and connecting the 3.5M entrepreneurs in over 600 chapters across 125 countries.

This is a community which can help you along your entrepreneurial journey. We understand that starting up is hard and requires a lot of guidance, help and motivation. We have also empathized with the struggles, an entrepreneur face while starting up. Thus we have taken the initiative of Startup Grind in Varanasi to help the local entrepreneurs, founders and the startups in the region to succeed.

We believe in making friends, not contacts. We believe in giving first, not taking. We believe in helping others before helping ourselves.

Our mission is to support the young founders, entrepreneurs, creators, and innovators, also to give startups the education & opportunities they need to build, grow, and scale their companies.

We live by the values of Startup Grind and vison to build a strong startup ecosystem in the region.


We host meaningful events and bring like-minded yet diverse individuals, institutions, forums, organizations from Startup Ecosystem together to connect, learn, teach, help, build, and belong. We encourage the youth of Varanasi to innovate, build and grow in the Startup Journey!

Feel free to ask about partnership, sponsorship, volunteer/collaborative opportunities with our community. If there is something we can do for you or help you with - please don't hesitate to reach out. 


Let’s together make the Varanasi chapter a success for those who love and live a life of an entrepreneur!
