Startup Week: Celebrating entrepreneurs in communities across the globe
Startup Week is more than a conference, it’s a celebration.
Startup Week™ brings entrepreneurs, local leaders, and friends together over five days to build momentum and opportunity around your community’s unique entrepreneurial identity. Join in a celebration led by entrepreneurs and hosted in the entrepreneurial spaces you love.
Over the course of five days, participants in Startup Week can choose the events they’d like to attend. Typically these events are held at various venues across a city. Speakers from the community, and outside it, are brought in to share their story to motivate and inspire the entrepreneurial community. Local organizers select the tracks they feel are most relevant to their community and choose speakers based on those tracks.
Over 75 communities have hosted a Startup Week, will yours be next?

Why any city is big enough for Startup Week
Nearly 60,000 people call Great Falls, MT home. It’s 1.5% of the population of Los Angeles; 9% of Seattle; and 14% of Miami. Next week, the third largest city in Montana will host its first Startup Week, and I couldn’t be more proud.
