Startup Grind Scotland Silicon Valley Programme

Startup Grind Scotland is bringing Scottish startups to the world stage!

This April, we are hosting a funded* journey to the 2022 Startup Grind Global Conference in Silicon Valley, San Francisco – and we want you to join us!

Where: Silicon Valley, San Francisco, USA

When: April 9th – 15th (inclusive)

The trip will be centred around the Startup Grind Global Conference 2022, a two-day in-person event that will bring together over 3000 of the best startups and scaleups worldwide. You’ll dive into the global tech ecosystem, get inspired by industry leaders and create new connections with founders and business leaders from across the world – all in the startup mecca that is Silicon Valley.

Taking the first step to becoming a global business is no easy task on a bootstrapped budget, so we’re handling the bills so you can focus on doing what you do best. Through facilitated introductions, hands-on workshops and keynotes from some of the biggest minds in tech and business, you’ll develop deeper connections that will inspire, accelerate, and bring humanity into the core of your business.

Help us bring Scotland’s world-class tech entrepreneurship ecosystem to the world.
