YOU Can Help Write #DENStartupWeek History as Part of our First-Ever Hybrid Event

Denver Startup Week, cofounded by the Downtown Denver Partnership, is thrilled to celebrate our 10th anniversary as the largest free entrepreneurial event in North America, with a community that has now surpassed 100,000 incredible entrepreneurs from around the world. 

We are so excited to bring this legendary event back to Denver on October 4-8, 2021, in a brand new hybrid format filled with community-driven content. The countdown is on – 2021 Sessions Submissions close this Friday, June 11 at 11:59 PM MST.

It’s been a long, difficult year for entrepreneurs and small business owners everywhere. Every step of the way, we’ve reminded our community of their entrepreneurial spirit and passion, and have been grateful for the many resources these networks have been able to cultivate with this vision in mind. 

Our community didn’t stop collaborating in 2020, but rather continued to push our city’s culture of innovation and entrepreneurship. We opened Denver Startup Week to a worldwide audience, with more than 56,000 views and counting on a record-breaking virtual program, and for the first time ever, we had 35 countries represented at sessions throughout the week. 

Denver Startup Week is committed to providing an impactful event that educates and inspires, creates community, and celebrates Denver’s thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem. With accessibility, health, and safety top of mind, this year our Organizing Committee is thrilled to serve entrepreneurs, empower business, and come together to build a stronger, more connected community through our first-ever hybrid event.

The hybrid format gives our community the programming flexibility and accessibility that was a silver lining of 2020, like Zooming in your colleagues from anywhere to participate, while reinvigorating our core focus of bringing people together. Select in-person components, like watch parties and networking, will allow attendees to safely choose live interaction if they wish. Our goal is to create options that will suit everyone and allow our community to build the Denver Startup Week experience that will work for you.

This year’s Call for Session Submissions process is coming to a close, and we’re excited to work with you to bring the best content our community has ever seen. We can’t wait to see what entrepreneurial magic you are able to create this year! 

Submit your session idea now to help write the story of these legendary ‘Denver-gone-global’ tracks and share your knowledge with the world.
