Accessibility at Denver Startup Week 2020

Denver Startup Week is committed to inclusivity, accessibility and equality at each of our events. In 2020, we have partnered with ACS Captions and LinguaBee for their expertise and guidance to serve participants who are hard of hearing, deaf, visually-impaired, blind, and/or bilingual.

We’d like to give a HUGE thanks to our 2020 Accessibility Sponsor for making these accommodations possible, Comcast.


*While Denver Startup Week is committed to providing reasonable accommodation, we rely on our sponsors and in-kind partners to provide fulfill request for services. Therefore, we may not have the capacity to honor every individual request.


ASL Interpretation:

Our in-kind DSW Partner LinguaBee will be providing American Sign Language interpreters for the sessions listed below. ASL interpreters will be featured as a panelist on screen. To make them larger please select the pin video feature - this will only pin the video for you, allowing better view of the signing.
