944 events were submitted to the Denver Startup Week organizing committee and then voted on by the Denver Startup Week community. Nearly 32,000 votes were cast to help identify the events including networking sessions, mentor hours, workshops and presentations that will occur at locations throughout Downtown Denver. 10,875 people registered to attend 235 events in 2015, and organizers expect to exceed that number this year.

Organized by the Denver Startup Week Organizing Committee and co-led by Tami Door, president and CEO of the Downtown Denver Partnership, Erik Mitisek, executive director of Project X-ITE at the University of Denver, and Ben Deda, chief operating officer at Galvanize, Denver Startup Week is focused on highlighting Denver as an entrepreneurial center on the local, regional and national stage, while enhancing community and providing resources for the startup community.
