Startup Grind is the largest independent startup community, actively educating, inspiring and connecting 215,000 founders in over 175 cities, local technology website Digiato writes.

The events nurture startup ecosystems in 70 countries through events, media and partnerships with organizations.

The cornerstones of the global community are monthly events featuring successful local founders, innovators, educators and investors who share lessons learned on the road to building great companies.

Founded in Silicon Valley, Startup Grind has now hosted 2,000 "fireside chats" since its founding in 2010. To date, Startup Grind has helped millions of entrepreneurs find mentorship, connect to partners and hires, pursue funding and reach new users.

Iran's startup sector has grown in both number and strength in recent years with many graduates exploring new business ideas.

Companies like Avatech and Dmond, both accelerators, are spearheading the rise of new companies in Tehran. They are also creating a new sense of interest for many of Iran's youth by supporting their activities.

That is why listening to the stories of how major businesses, which started off as startups and made it big, can help those that have only just formed.

By sharing valuable experience, young and aspiring entrepreneurs can learn a lot about the intricacies of the business. At this event, startup managers share their visions with enthusiasts and answer their questions.  

What makes these events even more interesting is that they bring about the opportunity for those active in the technology sector to make connections with experts in the field.
