Facilitate at Boulder Startup Week

Session/Event Opportunities for BSW 2024

Boulder Startup Week runs on a community effort to make our wonderful place more inclusive, welcoming, and innovative. We encourage and welcome diverse presenters, topics, and formats. BSW on its own is simply the container to bring together great programming all week, and we rely on folks like you to fill that container – to showcase and serve this awesome town and startup ecosystem.

The call for session facilitators is now open and will remain open until March 20, 2024. We would love to hear the kinds of sessions you imagine possible at BSW.

What We Are Looking For

For 2024, we will be strongly leaning towards inviting sessions that are uniquely Boulder and uniquely valuable to our community. We are so honored that you would share your perspective with the Boulder Startup Community and we can’t wait to hear how you internalize, interpret, and showcase this uniqueness.

It could be:
  • an activity, demo, workshop, etc.
  • indoor/outdoor
  • a novel take on community-building
  • requiring audience participation
  • simply a world-class talk
  • and so much more!
Our 2024 session focus areas include:
  • Opportunities for spontaneous & meaningful connection
  • Helping people get real work done/workshops
  • Community-building

What is a session facilitator?

A session facilitator is the individual in charge of the specific session (usually 45 min, but tell us if you need more time, like an evening networking session) who will drive a given session/event/activity. We get you the space and bring the audience, and you are responsible for everything else that happens in the room in your time slot. Facilitators are not paid (no one is at BSW).

This year we are back to multiple venues but still have limited capacity for sessions – so please make sure you highlight the value you can bring to the community when submitting your ideas.

Anyone can be a session facilitator – just fill out this form by March 20 with all the requested info (all the details really help us – a 100% volunteer group of dedicated community members – figure out the most efficient and effective way to serve our community). We will notify selected facilitators by April 1, 2024.
