Welcome To The Startup Grind Directors Manual
Welcome To Startup Grind!
Now that you are approved to launch a chapter in your city it’s time to get busy. Everything you need to know about hosting an event is available between this training and the rest of our help library: https://help.startupgrind.com. Our knowledge base is gathered from hosting monthly events in hundreds of cities around the world.
Always remember, if you have searched everywhere and are still stuck you can reach out to our community team at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Why Ford? It’s from Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Good book to read if you haven’t yet! ;)
You are now part of a big family...
During this course we will be going over all of the basics of running a successful event both behind the scenes and on stage.
One of our biggest goals is to make sure all events are consistently great worldwide and that our strong sense of community is felt at every chapter around the world. Our community is what keeps us going and it is up to our amazing directors and Startup Grind volunteers to keep this culture going. Getting great speakers is important, sponsors help make this sustainable, but YOU are the reason these events are possible and the most important part!
