Welcome to

Techstars Startup Week West Slope

June 5–8, 2019



About Startup Week

Techstars Startup Week West Slope is a free, multi-day, “choose your own adventure” meeting of the entrepreneurial minds and celebration of the #WestSlopeBestSlope way of doing business.

The Techstars Startup Week brings entrepreneurs, local leaders, and friends together to build momentum and opportunity around a community’s unique entrepreneurial identity.

Startup Weeks are multi-day events packed with presentations, panels, workshops, social events, and more – all crafted by the locals – to gather the community to learn from each other and celebrate their comradery.

Who is Techstars Startup Week West Slope for?

It is for future, current, and repeat founders – people who started or want to start a business or organization. Maybe you’re a successful, serial entrepreneur looking for your next project or a first-timer entering the stage searching for support.

Never started a company? No problem. This is also for entry- to executive-level employees working at a company.

And, it’s not all about tech (though some of it is about tech). This is for local, small businesses (coffee shops, clothing stores, bike shops, restaurants) and high-growth startups serving a global market (that’s the tech part). It’s also for makers and producers from agriculture to soft- or hard-good manufacturers to brewers/distillers/wineries to outdoor recreationists.
