I’m part of media how do I request a press pass?
If you’re a journalist reporting for a major media outlet or a private blogger with a considerable audience, we’d be happy to have you join as our guest. Please contact us through this form with your name, the name of the outlet for which you’ll report, a link to the site where the article would be published, and the monthly recurring visitors to the media property (if known).
Please note that speaker access is reserved to select media personnel and is not open to most press pass holders.
I’d love to be there, but my boss doesn’t want to count it a work day. What do I do?!
Will I meet investors or speakers if I attend the conference?
Though our speakers for the monthly event stay for the networking part, most speakers are busy founders who do us the great favor of sharing their time pro-bono exactly because they know we won’t demand much of it. All speakers are encouraged to meet attendees, walk the floor, and enjoy the conference — but we make no guarantees.
There will, however, investors and VIPs among the audience who have already bought a ticket, including some of our former speakers — many who’d love to meet you. In our other conferences, there was over $1 million offered to founders by investors they met during the two days of the event, some who randomly bumped into one another.
Our secret to spotting & connecting with VIPs: say hello to those people who seem relaxed and sit back during networking breaks, as many of them will be those whose networks are already incredible. If they don’t invest, it’s likely they know those who do — so make friends instead of pitching hard.
I can no longer attend the event, can I get a refund on my ticket?
Aww, we were really looking forward to meeting you. We’re sorry to say we do not issue refunds, nor do name changes.
Hope to see you next year!
Is there a Dress Code for this event?
Is there a Code of Conduct for this event?
Can I pass out flyers at the event?
We appreciate your enthusiasm, but we ask our guests to stick to business cards at most. Flyers tend to take time and focus away from the conference experience, so nail your pitch instead.
The only exception are paid sponsors, who also receive a booth and other perks at the event. Please, contact us through this form if you’d like to reach the Startup Grind audience. We’d love to work together.
