Startup Grind is arguably one of the biggest entrepreneurship events in the world with a global footprint that spans 200 cities, 98 countries and 1000 000 entrepreneurs. Currently three South African cities host Startup Grind events mainly Johannesburg, Cape Town & Durban. The event is traditional in its format as seasoned entrepreneurs are interviewed by a moderator and the audience get to ask some questions at the end. I have no quarels with tradition but the lack of engagement with those in the audience is a big drawback for me. Nonetheless it is an insightful and potentially impactful platform for entreneuers looking to learn from mentors they might not have access to otherwise. The event in Johannesburg takes place once a month at the Standard Bank Incubator.
