Rev1 Ventures at Columbus Startup Week

It’s finally spring—time to shake off winter, do a little spring cleaning, and get outside and enjoy the weather.

Another thing to enjoy this spring is the upcoming Columbus Startup Week—five exciting days (May 2-6) celebrating Central Ohio’s special brand of entrepreneurship.

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.

100+ events with 140+ great panelists and speakers

Check out the schedule of nearly 100 events with more than 140 speakers talking on topics such as design, technology, business basics, retail and fashion, food and beverage, 3D printing, and more.

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.
