Techstars Startup Week Hartford to be held Oct. 19 to Oct. 23

Techstars Startup Week Hartford, a celebration of entrepreneurs and innovators throughout greater Hartford, was initially slated to be held in late March. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the free five-day event cosponsored by Launch[H]artford and Techstars will now instead be held in a fully virtual format, October 19th through 23rd.


Techstars Startup Week Hartford will tap into the power of innovation to empower the entrepreneurial community throughout Hartford. The first-of-its-kind event in Hartford is designed for both seasoned and first-time entrepreneurs, as well as community members, to connect in ways that bring new possibilities and projects to life, and to launch programs that link industry experts with technology pioneers. Through a series of networking events, expert-led seminars, and creativity workshops, Techstars Startup Week Hartford aims to connect the next wave of talent to a whole new set of career opportunities in Hartford.

Attendees can participate in as many, or as few, of the virtual sessions as desired during the five-day virtual conference. The sessions will provide engaging content along with the opportunity to network with thousands of entrepreneurs, investors, and industry leaders.
