Startup Grind is a global startup community designed to educate, inspire, and connect entrepreneurs.

Startup Grind is powered by Google for Entrepreneurs. We host monthly events in 250 cities and 98 countries featuring successful local founders, innovators, educators and investors who share personal stories and lessons learned on the road to building great companies. Each and every event is catered and recorded on video and uploaded to the Startup Grind Youtube channel and the Startup Grind website, they are viewed by entrepreneurs around the globe. They are held in places like Stockholm, Dubai, Rome, Singapore, Seoul and now Chilliwack!

Our values are that we believe in making friends, not contacts. We believe in giving, not taking. We believe in helping others before helping ourselves. We are truly passionate about helping founders, entrepreneurs and startups succeed. We intend to make their journey less lonely, more connected and more memorable.
