Our goal is to bring the community together in an inclusive, educational, and engaging way. BSW is a celebration of entrepreneurship and a way to bring all walks of the startup world together who share a common goal: to imagine and bring to life exciting, valuable, and successful companies.

Boulder Startup Week is a volunteer-run organization that relies heavily on sponsorships from local companies. The board consists of five members committed to the BSW vision and is produced by Glider—a Colorado-based community movement that also produces TEDxBoulder, Ignite Boulder, the Boulder Tech Podcast, and WILD.
