Attending a Techstars Unsummit in Tucson will give you a glimpse into a diverse community on the rise, a place that has been around for thousands of years and is still reinventing itself and defining the ecology of our startup environment. We’ll discuss the process of being built in real time, tips and tricks for building a startup ecosystem, and an opportunity to share your own experiences with this budding community.
As creative and entrepreneurial people, we’re in the weeds. But as businessman and media mogul Gary Vaynerchuk would say, we have to be in the clouds as well as in the dirt. The Tucson Unsummit is designed around helping you zoom back out to 30,000 feet, relax and rejuvenate while taking in the sights, sounds, and smells of the American Southwest.
A lot of the weekend is up to you – if you could have a chance to take a deep breath, what are some things you would want to talk about with entrepreneurs and creatives from the region? What are some things you need to keep growing and scaling the initiatives you have going?
The other part of the weekend is up to us – not only do you as an individual and a company/initiative need to grow in the right direction, but you need a community around you that is thriving as well. That’s something we’re happy to share our struggles and successes with, so that you can go back to your community with a path for holistic organizational and community health.
And about the Southwest? We’re known as a City of Gastronomy, a creative cultural hub with miles of the best Mexican food you’ll ever have. We have professional party planners preparing to throw you a big dinner party on Saturday, tour guides ready to show you our city as an easel for murals and community art, a ride on our streetcar through our university and downtown to one of the oldest neighborhoods in all of the United States, and more.
But you don’t have to take our word for it. We’re one of the most affordable and friendly places in the country, so why not check it out for yourself?
There’s a lot we can learn from each other in 43 hours – are you in?!
