Looking to volunteer for Boulder Startup Week 2017 May 15-19? We would love to have you! Thanks for giving back to our amazing community.
As we are wrapping up Boulder Startup Week 2016 we have some awesome stats on our event and community.
- 8450 attendees
- 203 events
- 421 speakers
- 71 venues
- 41 is the average age of a BSW participant
- 42% of participants are female
- 44% of speakers are female
- 44% of participants are married
- 38% of participants have kids
- 71% of participants own a home
- The NPS score was 60
It is super interesting how high the stats are. 8450 is a massive number for a town of 100k people. The average age is higher than the stereotype of what a founder looks like. The participation of female attendees and speakers is much higher than the national average and is close to being representative of the community as a whole (not industry specific), which has been a focus. This is because of the hard work of a community that just a few years ago had less than 10% participation. The NPS of 60 is something we are extremely proud of.
Thanks to the influencers, a new app and our awesome sponsor lineup in this week’s update:
This year Boulder Startup Week has grown to be a wonderfully giant volunteer organization with hundreds of people throwing in and helping out. More people = better community. I’d love to take a moment and thank the following community members for stepping up and leading tracks, marketing, community outreach and being there when things fall through.
Here is the awesome team that donates their time to make this community event happen. They are amazing:
Also should be noted are our amazing sponsors:
