Session Agenda & Venue Information Coming Soon!

NEW FOR 2019

  • New Ideas: You’re in control this year at our “Pick Your Panel” session, where attendees will vote for their favorite potential panelists before the event, then see the winners live on stage.

  • New Programs: Pre-event workshops (yoga anyone?), special session tracks for emerging entrepreneurs, a “partner fair” to spotlight entrepreneurial resources available from our many collaborating organizations … plus more games, giveaways and interactive networking opportunities than ever before.

  • New Location: The Flats East Bank offers great walkability, convenient transportation options and more space for sessions and networking than ever before. Many of your favorite East Bank hangouts are part of the event, so it’s a great chance to get a taste of the whole neighborhood all in one day.


You’re in charge at this Startup Scaleup event, where attendees have a chance to vote for their favorite potential panelists before the event, then hear them live on stage.

Want to be one of these panelists? Know someone who may be interested? Submit a link to your 90 second YouTube video (no later than May 3) explaining why you’d make a great Startup Scaleup speaker.
