Social Events


Denver Startup Week is committed to inclusivity, accessibility and equality at each of our events. In 2021, we have partnered with LinguaBee for their expertise and guidance to serve participants who are hard of hearing, deaf, visually-impaired, blind, and/or bilingual.

Our channel on Youtube automatically processes and adds closed captions to videos as well, both during the livestream and on the recorded content. Please note, recorded content may not be immediately available due to processing time - but everything will be available for free afterwards!

We’d like to give a HUGE thanks to our 2021 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 fulfill requests for services. Therefore, we may not have the capacity to honor every individual request. Please email info@denverstartupweek.org with requests.

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 a better view of the signing.

This technology will be available automatically at all HEADLINE and SPOTLIGHT events, and several sessions in other tracks by request:
