Startup Grind is seeking tech & business writers, founders and entrepreneurs to educate and inspire an international readership with over 120,000 monthly views.

You’ll reach 70 cities with your personal brand, getting direct exposure for your projects with your potential customers and investors, and seeing your best work in our syndication partners like Inc Magazine or Forbes, Tech Times and more. All ongoing contributors will be rewarded with VIP event tickets, some annual travel packages for our global conference, and front-page opportunities. The best contributors will be on-boarded as paid columnists.

Startup Grind functions on three key values. This ethos resonates across all 170 cities that currently host Startup Grind. It will be evident in every piece of content shared on StartupGrind.com

1. Give, rather than take.
2. Help first.
3. Make friends, not just connections.

Writers are expected to contribute no less than two blog posts monthly with the following criteria:

1. 500 - 2000 correctly spelled & grammatically arranged English words.
2. Original content written entirely by the author (though we're open to some personal syndication).
3. Objectively discuss entrepreneurship, technology, global market trends, venture capital, or productivity strategies.

In short: posts should be unique, useful, and objective.

That is alright!
