Experience is the word to describe Twin Cities Startup Week 2019. The festival introduced a number of enhancements to the week, including partnering with local corporate leadership to provide high-quality content in unique venues and premiere tracks all in one location to reduce travel between events. The week also offered community hubs, accessible via public transit, in Minneapolis and Saint Paul to provide guests places to meet between sessions.

Continuing its inclusive, un-conference format, the week furthered collaborations with four co-conference events, while welcoming new content and voices like BA Women, the Constellation Fund, and the MEDA Million Dollar Awards. All of this was made possible with the help of our sponsors, event-hosts, content-partners, volunteers, core team, and more. To everyone involved, thank you for making this the best TCSW yet!

Twin Cities Startup Week will take place September 16-23, 2022.
