  • Startup Grind Silicon Valley

     Love SGSV - Derek and his brilliant team bring it - and so do the rock stars on stage 

    Fred S. on Feb 14, 2018.

  • Startup Grind Silicon Valley

     I've attended probably north of 10 different SG events over the years. From small ones to a huge production of their main event in Redwood City. Always amazing speakers and intriguing interviewers. No BS. There is also always a great community to socialize and network at these events. Highly recommended! Also, subscribe to their Medium publication https://medium.com/startup-grind

     I’ve attended many SG events and mostly felt it was time well spent, but the session with Jim Scheinman form Maven Ventures was especially informative and inspiring. He talked about his early involvement in two of the most influential online initiatives – social networking and transportation. In the first, he played key roles in two pioneering social networking sites - Friendster and Bebo – explaining why one failed and the other succeeded. Second, using vehicle automation as an example, he discussed Maven's strategy of getting involved early in business models that realistically address world-class problems, and how the commute startup Chariot qualified, a prescient move since it was just acquired by Ford. Learning about those deals from someone who played a key role in them was very insightful. Beyond the above, perhaps the most remarkable part of Jim’s talk happened *after* it was officially done: He stayed quite a while, answering questions and further sharing his insights.

     Excellent meetup for networking. 

    Dev on Mar 15, 2012.

  • Startup Grind Silicon Valley

     I think the concept is great, but it really needs to be more organized . People come here to network and having simple things like name tags are easy to do. Enjoyed the demo some of the people brought to show. Ask for volunteers to help out , it benefits everyone and as I see this business model defined as a community and networking opportunity event . So have people share in this networking model , pot luck/ snacks. But make sure there's enough food and water for all. 

    Danelle L. on Mar 15, 2012.

  • Startup Grind Silicon Valley

     I was frankly very impressed. Nicely done. I'm looking forward to coming to more events.

     "Amazing leadership and a team of entrepreneurs networking to helping others and giving back". Is the true meaning of a Silicon Valley meetup group. I most definitely found that warmth while attending "Startup Grind" meetup's. -Mathew Taele

  • Startup Grind Silicon Valley

     It was organized great, as usual. Great set of people showed up and it was to meet up some talented new people. Host was great. But the content of the program by itself wasn't entirely useful to startups or entrepreneurs. 

    Bala on Sep 30, 2011.

  • Startup Grind Silicon Valley

     Derek & team has established Startup Grind as one of the top startup events in bay area. Always excited to go and see what's cooking

     The networking group was open and approachable in a comfortable social environment. As a first timer, it was not intimidating and I was impressed how like minded people were receptive to my seemingly naive questions. 

    Chris L. on Aug 27, 2011.

  • Startup Grind Silicon Valley

     Great event energy. Really glad I attended. Enjoyed the conversations! 

    Jon N. on Aug 26, 2011.

  • Startup Grind Silicon Valley

     One of the things I would suggest is the name of the companies each person worked for or was founder of as that would make the networking more focused as to who we may want to meet and connect with...Thanks~ Nancy 

    Nancy L. C. on Aug 26, 2011.

  • Startup Grind Silicon Valley

     You guys have great speakers, a solid location and an innovative way to conduct Q&A. I love the shout-outs and collaborative environment you have set up. Kudos on the best meet-up in the Bay Area!
