WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: JOIN US AT HQ POWERED BY AMAZON & OTHER TRACK VENUES
We're back and bigger than ever! Each year, Denver Startup Week takes over Downtown Denver and the heart of DSW is our HQ (formerly Basecamp). DSW HQ POWERED BY AMAZON is popping up in a new location adjacent to Skyline Park/CitySkate (1611 Arapahoe St) and is open to the public throughout the week, Monday-Thursday from 9am-6pm and Friday from 9am-3:30pm. HQ is a place to network, chill, and make connections over coffee, tea, activities and more. You won’t want to miss our transformation of a downtown retail space into an immersive DSW experience!

Find Your Track Venue
To find the venue for your particular session, please check the schedule. Make sure to double check before you leave as things may change over the final days before DSW 2023! A huge thank you to all of the community partners who are hosting sessions during DSW. Below is a map of the primary venues being used for Denver Startup Week. Head to HQ if you’re unsure where to go and the volunteers at the Info Bar will help you figure it out!
We are happy to announce that DSW has partnered with FinalFind, a wayfinding tool that will lead users straight to their session's doorstep. This platform will be complete with instructions on how to navigate between HQ, Track Venues, Union Station, and other session locations. Each venue displays multiple routes you can take to reach your DSW destination!
Free Unlocks Courtesy of Lyft
Looking for an easy way to navigate Downtown during Denver Startup Week? We've got you covered! From 9/18-9/22, all DSW participants are eligible to receive FOUR FREE UNLOCKS for all Lyft scooters and bikes. All you need to do is scan the QR code or enter SCOOTDSW23 in the Lyft app. Feel free to visit the Lyft team at HQ if you have any questions about how to activate your code.

What to Bring
Make sure to grab sunscreen (weather looks GREAT), a reusable water bottle, and anything else you may need to spend your day downtown! Nearly all of our venues will be within walking distance of HQ, so consider biking (Lyft codes above!) or taking the lightrail to save on parking. As a part of our sustainability initiatives, HQ will feature reusable water and coffee cups, make sure to return them to the yellow bin.
