What is Techstars Startup Week?

Techstars Startup Week ™ is more than a conference, it’s a celebration. Startup Week brings entrepreneurs, local leaders, and friends together over five days tot build momentum and opportunity around our community’s unique entrepreneurial identity. Join in a celebration led by entrepreneurs and hosted in the local spaces you love. Over the course of five days, participants in Startup Week can choose the events they would like to attend at various venues across the city. Speakers from the community, and outside it, are brought in to share their story to motivate, inspire, connect, and educate the entrepreneurial community. Each year, local organizers select the tracks they feel are most relevant to our community and choose speakers based on those tracks. Over 75 communities across the globe have hosted a Startup Week, a program of Techstars.
