Start UP Grind is a global organization promoting entrepreneurism and now has university chapters, among the first to be started was the chapter at Wichita State University. Jake Wayman, the chapter director of the local Start-up Grind Wichita got together with Biomedical engineering graduate student Jessica Aldrich and Christian Ammerman, an undergrad student, to lead the way in bringing StartUp Grind U to Wichita State.
