Dayton Startup Week: One Community, Unlimited Possibilities

Dayton Startup Week visits Ohio’s aviation capital this week, where innovation and collaboration will take to the skies. For five days, the sixth-largest city in Ohio will see local entrepreneurs will meeting at sessions, pitching at meetings and attending educational sessions.
Startup Week is a five-day Techstars celebration of community, and this week it’s time for Dayton Startup Week 2017. where a classic circle sticker in the orange branding of Startup Week will be making the rounds. There’s a city skyline wrapped around a three-part event slogan: One Week. One Community. Unlimited Possibilities. Then a big, bold type treatment for the event branding and year help bring this 3.5″x3.5″ circle sticker to life.
Startup Weeks are an expanded version of Startup Weekends, something we sponsor all year round.  These events are a new type of conference that build momentum and create opportunities around entrepreneurship for local communities. What we are most excited about for these gatherings is that they are volunteer-led by entrepreneurs and they are hosted in the entrepreneurial spaces that have sprung up around a host city. The schedule is packed with different tracks, ranging from  information about seeking venture capital and building great company culture to securing IP and food-filled mixers and networking sessions.
The folks at Dayton Tech Guide put out a really nice video as a promo for the event, and you can check it out on their YouTube page. We want to thank the organizing teams and all of the volunteers that helped make this event happen, and we looking forward to seeing what this community builds. There’s quite a list of incoming startups that are making waves in Central Ohio.

Pachuca Startup Week gets bonus creativity points for their custom sticker sheets going to attendees all week as they roll out fun events around entrepreneurship.

They have a jam packed week of events for networking and learning as they feature hands on workshops, meet ups, talks and more around business in Pachuca de Soto, Mexico.

The Pachuca Startup Week sticker sheet features four total custom shaped peel offs, including a big Startup Week snow globe that contains a node to the local architecture and a fun “Made in Pachuca” peel that promotes Startup HGO (Hidalgo) a Pachuca-based startup incubator focused on eCommerce.

We sponsor Startup Weeks and Startup Weekends with custom stickers in association with Techstars, and we are so excited to see local business communities rallying together for a common purpose. “Startup Week is more than a conference, it’s a celebration.”

Startup Weekend Kids Mexico City 2016


Starting today through Sunday, Startup Weekend Kids Mexico City 2016 will be bringing together kids to focus their ideas into a business, and in the process have the opportunity to realize their wildest plans into tangible objects. Parents can be involved, and there will be games and problem solving sessions of all kinds, including a LEGO visualization exercise. Safe to say, the program is packed for these kids, and they will have an awesome sticker sheet with six individual peel offs of fun characters to stick wherever they please (just ask mom and dad!).

How does it work?

Startup Kids weekend is an event of 19 hours over a weekend, providing an educational experience in a fun learning environment where children are free to create, experience and bring their ideas reality. Participants will form teams according to the project ideas they have chosen. Through workshops, lectures and mentoring for three days, they will be in contact with expert coaches to guide their project, Mentors will provide the tools needed so that the kids can experience the process of turning an idea into something real.

Who can participate in this startup Weekend kids?

All children from 8 to 12 years are invited to bring their ideas to take the next step, to make friends, and to experience fun. These organizers know that children have both the talent and the creative minds to discover, so they are creating an experience to connect kids with entrepreneurs to witness the positive impact that they can generate in our society. Plus, this team is convinced that entrepreneurship is the best way to promote the progress of society and human welfare. Startup Weekend is the entry point to the world’s most important ventures, and Techstars is helping incubate entrepreneurs who will lead the future startups.

Thanks to the organizers and mentors for taking the time to arrange and attend this awesome community event (@alyssonfranklin, @solsona, @samarasalas, @stefica88, @erkluna, @wenyrmz, @huracaned, @XochOrtega).
