On 28 Jan 2016, OFICINA – Entrepreneurship and Innovation Lab, and Startup Grind,  are proud to organize the next Startup Grind event at Harry Fultz School . Event host: Mr.Gazmend Haxhia

Startup Grind is a global startup community designed to educate, inspire, and connect entrepreneurs. We aim to build a connected network of vibrant startup communities to help fuel innovation, economic growth and prosperity at the local level.

Each month we welcome an amazing speaker who shares their story with our community and tells us what worked, what didn’t, and what they’ll do differently next time.

They talk about the rough times and the celebrations. It’s an amazing opportunity to learn from the best, network with other members of the startup community, and improve your chances of entrepreneurial success.
