Startup Grind is a fireside chat interview concept coming out of Silicon Valley. It strives to actively educate, inspire, and connect the local community of founders, innovators and investors.
May event. organized by Startup Grind Prague was dedicated to the topic of supporting women in business #SGWomen. This topic is shared with the whole Startup Grind network and the host in Prague was Pavlína Zychova, cofounder of MyStay. She shared with us her story of how she got from the law studies to starting an IT company in the accommodation industry. The photos from the event can be found on Facebook Startup Grind Prague. While answering the questions from the audience, we found out what was the biggest obstacles she had to overcome and how the contact network can help. That is something we are helping you to build on our regular meetings, on the last event you had the chance to meet Microsoft representatives and we are keeping it up for the next one.
