How the Selection Process Works
The Denver Startup Week community plays a critical role in creating the event’s programming. Each spring, Denver Startup Week opens a Call for Session Submissions process in which the community is asked to provide session submissions to put on during Denver Startup Week. After the session submissions are collected, they are all posted to the DSW website for public vote. After the voting process concludes, the DSW Organizing Committee uses the vote totals to guide the final selections of sessions that are selected for inclusion in Denver Startup Week.
In 2017, nearly 1,200 sessions were proposed by the community, resulting in 376 individual sessions and events during Denver Startup Week. The DSW Organizing Committee works tirelessly to ensure that Denver Startup Week offers world-class programming that reflects the diverse expertise of Denver's innovation community and serve up a little something for everyone.
