Startup Grind is a really cool global community powered by Google for Entrepreneurs which hosts live monthly events for Phoenix business owners. Each event features a successful local founder, innovator, educator or investor who shares personal stories and lessons learned on the road to building great companies.
Each event we do gets archived on our global site: startupgrind.com – some of the past interviews (globally) were with biz legends like the founders of Nest, Capital One, Pinterest, Stripe, SoundCloud, Words with Friends, Intuit and Indiegogo. These interviews are a unique peek behind-the-scenes at the life, journey and insights of those who have gone before, and are incredibly engaging and inspiring events. Startup Grind was recently featured in Forbes magazine and is quickly becoming known as the TED Talks of the entrepreneur world.
Join us on Thursday, June 12 to hear from Pat Sullivan of Contatta, ACT! and SalesLogix. In July we’ll be hosting Doug Ducey, the co-founder and previous CEO of Cold Stone Creamery, and in August we’ll be chatting with Brian Smith of Grayhawk Capital, the southwest’s premier venture capital firm. Tickets are available at: http://startupgrindphx.com/upcoming-events/ – just $15 covers your evening, including dinner, if you sign up early.
