Rebrandly is getting ready for Startup Grind Europe 2016, and we could not be more excited! Yesterday (June 1, 2016) Startup Grind announced the induction of 15 companies to the 2016 Class of their Startup Program Europe. The Startup Program recognizes the top 15 companies handpicked from hundreds of startups throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. We at Rebrandly are truly honored for the opportunity and recognition.
A list of all 15 inductees can be seen here: http://rebrand.ly/StartupGrindEurope
“We started this program after seeing many of the Accelerators and Incubators not doing much to really help companies,” says Derek Andersen, founder & CEO of Startup Grind. “We really wanted to make an actual difference in the startups trajectory and leverage all of our resources and network to their advantage.”
“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 help of the program and the mentors/resources that were made available to them.”
