A database of over 20 startup week events from around the US and beyond! Join your city's next startup week and connect with founders, investors, and other key players.

Startup weeks are a great place for founders, government, investors, and other players to come together and help grow their startup ecosystem. They’re also a great opportunity for networking, finding your next job, or new customers for your services.

At Peak Digital Studio, we try to attend our local tech weeks, both in Reno and Las Vegas, as well as other cities we happen to be passing through, as we find the events a valuable way to grow our skills, network, and embed ourselves further in the tech and startup community.

For that reason, we began building a database of local tech and startup weeks from across the US and beyond, and thought we’d open source it for our audience to enjoy.

Below you’ll find over 20 (and growing) startup week events. If we’re missing any, let us know! And we hope to see you at the next one!
