Dayton Startup Week launches full schedule!

May 8, 2018

Yesterday we attended Day 1 of Columbus Startup Week, and while it was certainly fun and informative (as usual–great job Columbus!), it got us itching to release the full schedule for our own event which is now less than 5 weeks away. Since we’ve always heard “there’s no time like the present”, we decided today seems like a pretty good day to launch registration.

So here we go.





Dayton Startup Week!

We know you are!

And you can register now!

This year, we’d like to give a great big shout out to our amazing team who have helped pull together not only a kick@$$ roster of speakers but also some really cool new opportunities.

What kind of opportunities, you ask?

How about the Early Risers Pitch Competition that boasts a cash prize for 1 lucky entrepreneur in each of two tracks: innovation and main street. So whether you have aspirations of opening a retail boutique or launching some extremely cool technology into the world, we want to hear about your big ideas!

Or maybe you need to discover some very helpful and free resources to accelerate the growth or launch of your business. In that case, you’ll want to check out the Startup Resource Fair, where you’ll have the opportunity to casually stroll through, check out, and engage with a multitude of business support organizations and individuals who are eager and willing to help you reach your goals.

Or perhaps you’re trying to figure out what steps you need to take to be ready for funding. In that case, you’ll want to hop on the 5/3 EBus, which will be parked outside of our basecamp for several days to provide business counsel to people needing to find a route to gain access to cash.

Or maybe you’re most excited about the opportunity to connect and collaborate with over 1,000 innovators, game-changers, movers & shakers–like yourself. In that case, you’ll want to hang around basecamp and take advantage of free coworking and plug into our evening socials, like our Startup Party on Deck at a Dayton Dragon’s game or the Startup Woes Blackbox Improv Show where we’ll get to poke a little fun at ourselves and share some laughs.

Whatever entices you to come, we’re excited to have you join the community!

Check out the full schedule of events and register today!

And help others discover and plug in to this incredible week of connection, education, and inspiration. If you’re on social media, share the event with your friends. If you have a blog, tell about this exciting collision of new and seasoned business minds. If you host a podcast, interview one of our knowledgable speakers.

The Startup Community is as big and as valuable as we make it–together.

Hope to see you there!
