San Diego Startup Week is the signature event for the San Diego Startup Community.

May 28 – June 2, 2019

Thousands of Entrepreneurs, Developers, Designers, Investors, Students, Community Leaders…

One Incredible Week!

Startups, Developers, Mentors, Speakers,
Community Leaders & Talent

Once a year, the San Diego startup community comes together to share progress, exchange resources, and celebrate each other.

Startup San Diego volunteers work with the community to create five days of educational sessions and social events.

During the week, attendees meet thousands of entrepreneurs, startup founders, developers, designers, community players, students, smart people just poking around… and hundreds of leaders at local do-gooding organizations.

Session tracks and topics help attendees find their way to the right place each day.  The days will end with parties, keynotes, crawls, demo night, and the startup fair.
