What is Startup Week?

Startup Week celebrates the achievements of entrepreneurial communities in Tampa and St. Petersburg by bringing entrepreneurs and professionals together in a way that they can connect, share and bond.

Over the course of five days, participants in Startup Week can choose events that are grouped into tracks of similar topics of interest. Local and global business leaders are brought in to share their expertise to motivate and inspire the entrepreneurial community.

How can Startup Week benefit you?

Our event is by the business community, for the business community. Thousands of startups and business leaders will have the chance to connect and get the right tools to break into today’s marketplaces.

After Startup Week, participants benefit from a strong connection and a new sense of inclusion within the local professional community. It’s this support network that can make the difference between closing up shop and pushing through to success.
