Gro X Story

More people than ever are thinking about starting a business. However, how do we know if we have a winning idea, or where the funding will come from, or even what to do first? While there are many resources to inspire us, not everyone has access to successful guidance from seasoned entrepreneurs….until now.  

This is where Gro wants to offer a helping hand. By partnering with seasoned entrepreneurs and experts we have developed a proven platform to guide all aspiring entrepreneurs to start up smart, totally free of charge.

Gro’s founder Bryan Janeczko is a 15+ year serial entrepreneur, who has launched and sold a number of successful ventures including NuKitchen. Over the last decade, Bryan has devoted his time to a number of entrepreneur support and economic empowerment organizations such as the New York Founder Institute, StartOut, NYU Stern, the Entrepreneurs Organization, and Youth Entrepreneurs and is involved in a number of impact venture organizations across the country.
