Startup Week Fort Wayne is a free, five-day conference that is scheduled with 24 unique presentations and workshops that are business and startup oriented. We aim to celebrate the growth of the city’s entrepreneur and startup communities and provide anyone interested in starting and growing a business with how-to information, available resources and the opportunity to meet others on a similar path. The events will take place at various locations downtown but will be centralized at Cinema Center from 8:30am-4:30pm

This totally volunteer effort is executed in coordination with Techstars, a worldwide network that helps entrepreneurs succeed. A group of 20 local entrepreneur support organizations is leading the second annual Startup Week Fort Wayne to provide resources, information, ideas, and connections to new and scaling business owners.

Cocktail Hours with a cash bar will take place every day from 5-6pm at the respective Headline Event locations from Monday through Friday which can be found through the ticket link.
