The City of Columbus is quickly rising in the ranks as one of the best cities to start a company outside of Silicon Valley.
We have a growing VC presence and multi-million dollar startups.
But we all know there’s something different about this city, that our flavor of ambition isn’t “progress at all costs.”
September 9-13, Columbus’ startup community is coming together to collaborate, give back, and grow.
It’s not just for founders and investors — it’s for anyone with ambition.
Bring your ambitious team to Columbus Startup Week this year.
Come to the Kickoff Party on Monday, September 9th.
Tee off at Top Golf, 5:30-8: 30 pm! Great food and beverages will be provided. The perfect opportunity to make great contacts without losing time at the office. Meet our special co-host and sponsors AWARE, AWH and Startupgrind. Limited availability.
3-day access pass September 9-11th at the historic Lincoln Theatre.
With three different tracks spread across 3 days, there is something for everyone. Get new ideas, meet potential all-star hires for your dream team, or gain skills to bring back to your crew.
