On this episode we are joined by the Co-Founder of GRIT, Dylan Zanker, as well as Samuel Garcia, Principal at Amplo Ventures.

GRIT Boxing started as a physical, social, fun, unique boxing studio in Manhattan and spread like wildfire. With their “club like’’ atmosphere, top tier trainers and full liquor bar, GRIT quickly made a name for itself in New York City. They are now launching their in-home product the GRIT EPIQ, the intelligent home gym of the future. The product includes a state of the art smart mirror, haptic knuckle weights, digital weights and a step bench to pair with their integrated speakers, incline bench, resistance bands and two way camera to provide users with an entire home gym experience. The pairing of the physical aspects along with their two way communication with trainers, a “clubhouse” style communication before and after workouts and their virtual bar, GRIT EPIQ truly has all you need. You can join in their fundraise at republic.co/grit or reach Dylan at dylan@gritboxing.com.

AtDraper Startup House, our mission is to provide every entrepreneur in the world the same access to tools and resources that historically have primarily only been in Silicon Valley. We’re not your typical accelerator. DSH is scouring the globe to find game-changing founders at the earliest stage, building industry-transforming companies. Founders will be pushed to their limits mentally and physically, only to come out the other end stronger and better prepared to tackle the challenges of creating an extraordinary business. Startup founders will leave with a toolbelt of resources, knowledge, and connections to continue to thrive after a one-of-a-kind accelerator experience. We invest up to $100k in the earliest stage startups. We look for: Exceptional People, Extraordinary & out of the box ideas. We pride ourselves on bringing the resources and tools of Silicon Valley to the rest of the world. Our 2022 Accelerator Cohorts will be in Austin, TX.
