Startup Grind is the world's largest startup community designed to educate, inspire, and connect entrepreneurs. It is powered by Google for Startups.

We host monthly events and are based in more than 500 cities in 125 countries featuring successful local founders, innovators, educators and investors who share personal stories and lessons learned on the road to building great companies.

Our monthly fireside chat interviews, startup mixers and annual conferences provide ample opportunities to connect with amazing startups and the people behind them, tap into a strong support network, form meaningful connections and gain inspiration for the startup journey ahead.

We aim to build a connected network of vibrant startup communities to help fuel innovation, economic growth and prosperity at the local level.

We believe in making friends, not contacts. We believe in giving, not taking. We believe in helping others before helping yourself. We are truly passionate about helping founders,entrepreneurs and startups succeed. We intend to make their startup journey less lonely, more connected and more memorable.

Product Surgery with Co-Founder of Monzo and GoCardless: Tom Blomfield

Tom Blomfield co-founded two unicorns: Monzo and GoCardless. Monzo is the digital bank and GoCardless makes it easy to collect payments by direct debit. Since leaving Monzo in early 2021, Tom is an active investor.

Tom has agreed to speak at Product Surgery and help a few early stage startups in candid sessions, where founders share their real challenges and Tom offers advice and tips. In this unique session we will for the first time show you such session, where we can learn along with the founders.

We give recommendations and provide the startups with an action plan. Join us at this unique opportunity to hear real pains from real startups and hear startup advice from serial entrepreneur Tom Blomfield.
