Free lodging for Techstars Startup Week West Slope

June 5, 6, and 7 | Grand Junction

Techstars Startup Week West Slope is a free, multi-day, “choose your own adventure” meeting of the entrepreneurial minds and celebration of the #WestSlopeBestSlope way of doing business.


Communities across the world have utilized Startup Weeks to bring entrepreneurs, leaders, and friends together to share ideas, learn from each other, and build momentum and opportunity for entrepreneurs within their region. These multi-day events are packed with presentations, panels, workshops, social events, and more – all crafted by locals.

This is the premier annual event to further yourself–personally and professionally–and to celebrate the #WestSlopeBestSlope way of doing business.

To get the most out of the week, you need to be in Grand Junction on June 6 and 7th.  That’s why Startup Colorado is excited to provide FREE LODGING to help Rural Coloradoans attend.

With the help of our friends at Colorado Mesa University, founders, entrepreneurs, and doers from all across Colorado will sleep, eat, and learn together under one roof.
