Dayton StartUp Week 2019

In its fourth year, this free, annual, week-long, entrepreneur-led, volunteer-run, community-focused conference brings together the region’s thinkers, dreamers, doers, makers & entrepreneurs in venues located across downtown Dayton. All experiences are welcome — whether a seasoned entrepreneur or new to the community, there is space to jump in.

Startup Week is a five day celebration of our community, in a new type of conference that builds momentum and opportunity around entrepreneurship, led by entrepreneurs and hosted in the entrepreneurial spaces you love.

This year, WE here at The Brightside were happy to host the arts and music tracks for Dayton StartUp Week 2019 as well as some new additions- Smart Cities, kids tracks, a startup market and evening sessions. Audrey Ingram, Co-Organizer of StartUp Week was thrilled to host some of the weeks activities here, in support of fellow entrepreneurs. "We utilized the Brightside spaces several days for Startup Week, a weeklong conference on all things entrepreneurship. We held various events, from traditional conference-style talks to social events. Our experience was fabulous! Shay, Carli & Hamilton are incredible to work with — they rolled with last-minute schedule shifts and worked to accommodate all of our requests. I can't recommend this venue & team enough."

Sabrina Cox led the discussion for one of our panels in the Arts & Music tracks.
