Hello & Welcome to @FremontGrind

I am a Co-founder & COO of Kvantum Inc., a marketing performance company and a Fremont resident. In last three years while working on my own startup, I met quiet a few entrepreneurs in Fremont and nearby area mostly in social settings. I never found a platform in Fremont/East Bay that provides an opportunity to connect entrepreneurs, wanna-be-entreprnerus, service provides, startup advisors, investors. Sure, we have lots of options to join the meetups, attend panels and sessions but most of those happen other side of the Bay.

To help educate, inspire, and connect local entrepreneurs, I am launching StartupGrind Fremont Chapter.

It's an amazing opportunity to learn from the best, network with other members of the startup community, and improve your chances of entrepreneurial success.
