Startup Grind is the legendary community of 600 Chapters in 125 countries that educates, inspires, and connects entrepreneurs.
Since 2012, it has hosted 10,000 events for over 250,000 entrepreneurs.
And I just had the chance to interview its Founder Derek Andersen, based in Silicon Valley.
He’s spent the past 10 years building communities.
Derek is also co-founder & CEO of Bevy, the Customer-to-Customer SaaS platform that helps Salesforce, Atlassian, and Slack scale their event communities. His investors include Accel & Upfront Ventures.
So he knows a thing or two about building communities, scaling startups, and hiring Rockstars.
In this 20-minute conversation, we cover all three.
