Startup Grind StellenboschStellenbosch Western Cape South Africa
Stellenbosch Startup Grind is a new Chapter in the Western Cape. Startup Grind is the world’s largest community of startups, founders, innovators, and creators. We host a lot of events, but more than that Startup Grind is a community. We bring like-minded yet diverse individuals together to connect, learn, teach, help, build, and belong. We do this daily through our local events, flagship conferences, startup program, and online media + content – collectively reaching over 3.5 million individuals worldwide.
Stellenbosch is a university town in South Africa’s Western Cape province. It’s surrounded by the vineyards of the Cape Winelands and the mountainous nature reserves of Jonkershoek and Simonsberg. The town’s oak-shaded streets are lined with cafes, boutiques and art galleries. Cape Dutch architecture gives a sense of South Africa’s Dutch colonial history, as do the Village Museum’s period houses and gardens.
It is here we created a community of entrepreneurs, innovators alike. About 50 kilometres outside of Cape Town lies the beautiful town of Stellenbosch, nestled against vineyards and blue mountains that stretch to the sky. Here reside some of South Africa’s wealthiest individuals in South Africa: Johann Rupert, Jannie Mouton, Markus Jooste and Christo Wiese, to name a few.
Stellenbosch is also a tech savvy town full of innovators. Together with our partners we are creating an extraordinary ecosystem for entrepreneurs to succeed and rival the best in the world. Feel free to join our community and be part of something truly special.
