We are Community.

We built an in person community 8 years before Bevy. We live and breathe it. Now we help others do the same: empower those who care to create and connect in real life all over the world.

Story

One of the biggest communities of entrepreneurs!

Startup Grind was founded to educate every founder in the world. The best way to have a global impact is for the community to be in person and build real relationships.

Startup Grind needed the platform to allow the most passionate founder in every city bring together the whole community—that's how Bevy was born!

Our Values

These are the values that guide our company. As we continue to evolve and grow, as a brand and as a human being, these five values remain constant.

heart

Community First

We believe in the power of community and prioritize the needs of our community members and teammates. Act with integrity, think about the community, not just yourself. Help community professionals gain a seat at the table. Work for the benefit of the group, not the individual. Build safe, diverse, and inclusive spaces. Always act with kindness and empathy. Do the right thing.

Build for the passionate advocates, the local organizers. Make sure they can galvanize their community and drive impact. Empower them to make a positive impact on the world.

arm

Stand Up

Protect your principles, defend your position, stand by our customers and our team. Take time off when you need to recharge. Look for opportunities to empower others and raise them up. Stay accountable to your teammates.

communicate

Communicate Like a Legend

Communicate honestly and thoughtfully so everyone is on the same page. Create space, talk to each other, practice radical candor, recognize your colleagues, seek input from others, speak your mind. Communicating before assuming, actively listening, and using clear, concise language to convey ideas.

legacy

Build a Legacy

Move slow and make stuff. Play the long game. Don’t take shortcuts. Think before you act. Build something with lasting impact. Do what’s needed to get the job done, in the moment, and sustainably over time. Be decisive and have a bias for action.

tick

Let's Grow!

Dream big, work hard, learn from your mistakes, adopt a growth mindset, never give up. Challenge yourself to set ambitious but achievable goals. Go the extra mile when necessary. If something isn’t working, seek advice and experiment with new solutions. You only have one life, make it your best life.
