About BSW

In looking around the country, there are few brighter frontiers than the City of Trees. Boise Startup Week stands for a single week during the year where the inspired and driven come to learn and share.

BSW 2019 features thought-provoking, informative, and entertaining events put on by more than 50 organizations.

This year, let’s challenge our entrepreneurs, our city leaders, our storied successes, and our future successors, by asking them, “What if?” Let it act as a challenge to what they see within themselves as well as our city.

Whether you’re a startup founder looking for investment or mentorship, an employer looking for talent, an investor looking for prospects, or a student looking for work, Boise Startup Week is designed to empower you to make meaningful connections and learn from the best.
