“Of the 6,000 plus startups that were considered, 50 were selected representing the Startup Grind community across 80 countries. These startups have great teams, traction, technology and massive markets,” says Andersen. “Our biggest goal is for each startup to go back home with a new and improved game plan that would not have happened without the exposure of the exhibition and the mentors/resources that were gained through our network.”
