Get More by Giving

When lending a helping hand goes a long way

Here at Startup Grind, we know a thing or two about giving back. Our entire business model is built on that very idea! Back when Derek started SG out of his garage (I’m sure you’ve all heard the story), it was based off a need he saw for many entrepreneurs and startup founders – to learn from people who had been through it, successfully and unsuccessfully. And because there’s no school or college major for “Working Your Butt Off to Get Your Idea Off the Ground”, he realized that the way to accomplish that was for people to share their techniques, stories and connections with the people that needed it the most. Derek thought, if everyone offered a little bit of their expertise to others just for the sake of being kind and helpful, new founders could be a lot more prepared and better off.

Fast-forward 10 years, we’ve had tens of thousands of speakers donate their time to our attendees, our directors spend long hours building and maintaining communities in their cities, and our HQ makes sure the wheels keep turning all across the globe. We invite you to think about one way to give back this month and let us know how it goes.
