Valley business leaders, funders and founders celebrate entrepreneurship with premier event

Phoenix Startup Week Powered by Chase on February 23-27, 2015

Entrepreneurs and startups are invited to unite and celebrate everything
entrepreneurial at Phoenix Startup Week on Feb. 23-27, 2015, a weeklong series of more than 60 events focusing on inspiring and strengthening the Valley’s entrepreneurial communities.

Leaders from the Valley’s entrepreneurial community designed this event to help entrepreneurs find success by focusing agenda content on the topics of finding funding, marketing for startups, sales training, mentoring sessions with CEOs and funders and more.

Speakers and agendas are still being finalized. Interested speakers should apply at http://goo.gl/forms/MP88eaf1UT. Interested volunteers may contact j@cottrell.co.

Championed by UP Global in partnership with Chase, Phoenix Startup Week is built by the community for the community. In 2013, 5,500+ startup community members and more than 650 companies engaged in 125+ community-driven events all with the goal of celebrating everything entrepreneurial in the Mile High City. Since then, Startup Week has launched in Seattle and now Phoenix, the third stop in its national expansion.

Events will happen across the Valley throughout the week of February 23-27, 2015.

#ChaseBasecamp will be the hub of Phoenix Startup Week activity with programming, charging stations, meetup and mentoring opportunities. Sessions will feature local entrepreneurs, business leaders and more taking place at various venues across the Valley.
