Startup Grind Barcelona

Since April 2014, we have been organising Startup Grind in Barcelona, hosting an event month after month without a break. So far, we have welcomed more than 7000 entrepreneurs in over 100+ events thus far, with an average attendance of 150 people.

We conduct fireside chats with distinguished founders, investors, CTOs, and all sorts of experts who want to explain the highs and lows of their entrepreneurial journey.

Startup Grind is a global startup community designed to educate, inspire and connect entrepreneurs. Startup Grind, in partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) has a chapter in over 600 cities in more than 150 different countries worldwide.

Startup Grind Barcelona Conference

We've organised three editions of Startup Grind Tech Conference, the annual Startup Grind conference focused on all things related to tech: SaaS, product, UX, architecture, IoT, blockchain, hiring developers, remote work, future trends and much more.

Circa 800 like-minded entrepreneurs and people in tech meet for two days and learn from the best speakers from all over the world in our conference. We learnt from the founders & investors of Couchsurfing, Revolut, Typeform, Shazam, Blablacar and many more.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference has been suspended until further notice.

After a year and a half running Startup Grind in Barcelona, we detected that our attendees had no way to keep in touch between events. At the same time, many companies and initiatives started to create new platforms to aggregate and connect all entrepreneurs and startups in Barcelona to no avail.

Enter Slack. Slack was conceived as a company communication tool and has been largely adopted as such. Why reinventing the wheel when other initiatives like Startup Grind, Nomadlist and Ruby on Rails use it for their communities?

Thus, we created Startup BCN, a Slack community for the Barcelona startups and entrepreneurs, where we share news, blog posts, job offerings, new trends, we team up to go to events... Join the party! We're more than 2000 members nowadays!

Startup Digest is the the personalised insider newsletter for all things startup in Barcelona and around the world. To most entrepreneurs, Startup Digest is the number one newsletter to keep updated with everything that's going on in their own cities & the cities they travel to.

After having curated the Startup Grind Barcelona newsletter, we felt we needed to reach a broader to make more impact and to give more value to the Barcelona startup community, so we started curating Startup Digest in our beloved city. Nowadays, it's got well over 5000 subscribers.

Join the list and find out about the best events in Barcelona!
