Startup Grind Global Conference Ticket Giveaway for Subscribers!

The Startup Grind Global Conference brings thousands of startup lovers together in Redwood City every February for 2+ days of inspiration, education, networking, and parties. Startup Grind Conference theatre_opt

Startup Grind Global Conference speakers include startup superstars you can't see anywhere else – and pretty much never here in Orange County...

These include the Founders of unicorn startups like Stripe, Headspace, RobinHood, and PayPal, AI Visionaries like Dr. Andrew Ng, famed venture capitalists like Vinod Khosla, Ben Horowitz, Jeremy Liew, and Michael Seibel, and best-selling authors like Daniel Pink and Nir Eyal, too.

Maybe even more importantly, there will be 8,000+ fellow entrepreneurs there! 

These include the founders of many more new, niche companies that attend to exhibit, compete in the startup pitches, and meet new people.

I'm the best person in OC to attend star up grind because I clearly represent the entrepreneur minded people of So Cal and because my company ADITT was created in Orange, OC, built in OC, developed in OC, raised in OC, work in OC and cared for OC.

Stu Harvey

I would be honored to be selected to represent Orange County at Startup Grind Global. I feel I would be a good fit because as an entrepreneur, I have put a lot of effort into getting plugged into the OC startup community, helping other entrepreneurs, and bringing awareness to our startup community here. Our company is a location intelligence platform that leverages AI to enhance location based customer experiences, and I feel our innovative technology would be a great representation of the great things that are happening in the Orange County startup world.


Entrepreneurs need all the help we can get. Would be great to meet other entrepreneurs and collaborate!

This looks like an awesome event for people that really want to learn from the best of the best!

In the OC start up community, there are a lot of good people with great ideas who would love an opportunity like this. I feel that anyone who has a valid idea, who is truly committed to seeing it turn into a product that will improve people's lives, who has invested, blood, sweat, tears and money because they believe in making a difference using their God-given talents, is the best person to send to Startup Grind Global. Having said that, I believe I’m best positioned to translate this opportunity into meaningful action that can change the world. At our startup Trackmytennis based in Mission Viejo, we are committed to helping coaches organize, track and grow their programs faster. We continue to make a difference by giving coaches the one thing they can never get back…time. Our innovative system allows coaches to save up to 70% in admin time, while allowing them to collect their money 90% faster and grow their revenues by over 20%. Going to Startup Grind Global would give me the opportunity to 1- learn from others who have walked the path I’m currently on, 2- become an evangelist for Orange County’s role in changing lives through nurturing their talent and fueling the startup economic activity; and most importantly 3- give back to others who want to follow the same entrepreneurial path. Beyond the ardent desire to succeed, I have an equally ardent desire to give back and help others. Thank you for sending me to Startup Grind Global and thus giving me a chance to learn not just for me, but also for the budding entrepreneurs behind me.

Honestly, I'm an entrepreneur that has taken more beatings than successes. Unfortunately for life, I love a good scrap. lol In all seriousness, I'd be humbled to receive this if you are still looking for someone to give it too. Otherwise, I'm sure that all my fellow comment leaving entrepreneurs are up for the great learning experience as well. Good luck everyone! Keep grinding and keep having fun!
