Discover an upcoming startup event near you!

Techstars Startup Programs: Action-oriented programs in your community that power every step of the entrepreneurial journey.

Startup Weekend

In just 54 hours, you will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. As you learn how to create a real company, you’ll meet the very best mentors, investors, cofounders, and sponsors who are ready to help you get started.

This unique event is one of five happening simultaneously across the U.S. (Miami, NYC, Chicago, Oakland) to support LatinX led startup ventures. Being of Latin descent is not required, but the goal is to have 70% of participants and mentors, and 50% of judges be Latinx. Can’t attend? Follow along with #SWLatinxtech and #SWLatinxLA.

Grab your friends and make the short drive from Toronto, Waterloo, or beyond to participate in this exciting event in Peel Region. In the month of September, cities across Canada (Kamloops, Bay of Quinte, Saint John, Calgary, Montreal, Vancouver, and Peel Region) are competing in the#SWCanada17 competition for a big grand prize! You’re invited to participate!

Young entrepreneurs are invited to Startup Weekend Youth Mackay to take an idea from nothing to something, pitch to prototype, in 3 days.

Startup Week

Techstars 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.

Participants 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.
