Beyond the Pitch
10+ Startup Week Events You Can’t Afford to Miss!
It’s finally spring—time to shake off winter, do a little spring cleaning, and get outside and enjoy the weather.
Find out what the entrepreneurial buzz in Columbus is all about
Startup Week events are inclusive of entrepreneurs, of course, but the audience is way broader than that.
Startup Week is for people who are curious about startups, people who might want to start or work for one, people who work for big companies and want to be more creative, and people who would just like to connect with this vibrant and fun sector of the Columbus community.
50+ events with 60+ great panelists and speakers
The format is varied, with talks, panels, workshops, and keynotes. The speakers are expert. The participants are lively and fun.
And here’s the best part: All of the events are FREE.
