The exhibition helps companies to accelerate their pace towards growth and success by gaining the visibility of mentors and investors in our network.

"We really wanted to make an actual difference in the startups trajectory and leverage all of our resources and network to their advantage."

"Of the 6,000 plus startups that were considered, 100 were selected representing the Startup Grind community across 80 countries. These startups have great teams, traction, technology and massive markets," says Andersen. "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 of the exhibition and the mentors/resources that were gained through our network."
