What Happens During the Big Week?




  • Events and Networking

    In partnership with local companies, we provide workshops, panels, networking events tailored for our startup community in tech, marketing, financing and more. Check out our jam-packed schedule for #VSW2019.

  • Recruitment Fair

    We want to create new opportunities and support local job seekers. So, we're connecting top talent and companies for an evening of engaging conversation. If you're looking to add great talent to your growing team - this fair is for you!

  • Hackathon

    In partnership with TTT Studios and VIDIA we brought to life VanHacks, an annual hackathon. Dedicated to helping those helping our community, VanHacks is designed around the mantra of acting local and thinking global.

Thank you, 2019!

From September 13th to 20th, 2019, attendees were able to experience events that covered everything startup related; from scaling up with growth strategies and venture capitalism to networking and VR related tech. To drive more value, we grouped our 100+ events into five tracks: founder, funding, technology, growth, and networking, alongside our returning favorites such as the Recruitment Fair and VanHacks Hackathon.
