Countless hours of building a company can be compounded by more hours figuring out taxes and legalities, as well as investor and compensation rules. It can seem like a grind and at some point you’ll need help. That’s why the organization is called “Startup Grind.”

Startup Grind is a volunteer-run effort designed to inspire, educate and connect entrepreneurs. Since 2012, we’ve been hosting fireside chats with local VC’s and startup founders in the Seattle area. It’s become known as a highly interactive and engaging networking event within the startup ecosystem.

You will meet fellow entrepreneurs working on their first or next startup.  With locals like Dan Levitan, Oren Etzioni, Michelle Goldberg and others, it’s become a place where you can count on meeting great people and enjoy a nice glass of wine or beer.
