IDEA TRACK

Bring Your Ideas

The Idea track is for anyone who has an idea for a startup, wants to join a startup, or has recently launched a startup. Learn to generate, validate, and take action on your best ideas as well as the basics of new startup formation. Whether you’re an experienced entrepreneur or just starting out, this track will help make your ideas a reality.


Every startup begins as an idea, but not every idea ends up as a startup. What is it that makes one idea go the distance while others fall by the wayside? What separates a great idea from the merely good ones? And just how do you get from idea to startup?

Whether you are someone armed with an idea looking for your next move or just merely curious about the startup world, someone who’s finding your footing as a first-time startup founder/CEO or looking to join a startup team, the Idea Track is where you go to get your questions answered.
