About Startup Grind
Startup Grind is a global network with chapters in over 300 cities and 120 countries, with 1,000,000 participants. It is the largest startup organization in the world. The world headquarters are in Redwood City, Silicon Valley US where the Startup Grind Global is held annually, drawing 7000+.
One Georgian company, VREX Immersive, placed in top 50 of 7000 companies that applied for the startup showcase.
We also met with Georgians living in the US such as Zaza Pachulia, George Arison and Nicholas Zaldestani. Strong connections were made and some participants have seen direct outcomes from these relationships.
2. Startup Grind Europe
For June 2018 Enterprise Georgia sponsors a booth at Startup Grind Europe in London. This will highlight Georgian startups.
Georgia will be a highly visible “country sponsor” for Startup Grind Europe and will be showcased in the Startup Nations event on the 14th and part of a VIP reception.
