Startup Grind is the largest independent startup community, actively educating, inspiring, and connecting 1,000,000 founders in over 200 cities. They nurture startup ecosystems in 98 countries through events, media, and partnerships with organisations like Google for Entrepreneurs.

With over 6000 companies in the running this year, from 200 cities in 80 countries around the world, the GRAKN.AI team is incredibly excited and truly honoured to be selected as the Top 50 most impressive and elite companies who will be joining Startup Grind’s 2017 Global Startup Program!

“From over 6,000 startups that were considered, these 50 were selected representing the excellence in the Startup Grind community across 80 countries. These startups have great teams, traction, technology and massive markets,” says Derek Andersen, founder & CEO of Startup Grind. “Our biggest goal is for each startup to go back home with a new and improved game plan that would not have happened without the exposure to the exhibition, the mentors, and the resources that are gained through our network.”

The program will take place at Startup Grind 2017 Global Conference, which runs February 21–22 at the Fox Theatre, in downtown Redwood City, California. GRAKN.AI will be exhibiting at the event on Tuesday, the 21st of February. If you’re at the event, please drop by for a demo, and to say hello!
