Every year, Dallas Startup Week brings together entrepreneurs and change-makers for a week-long experience, described as the largest entrepreneurial event in North Texas, where they exchange ideas, collaborate, and grow alongside the 10th largest startup ecosystem in the US.

This year, Dallas Startup Week is going hybrid from August 1 to 5, offering both in-person events at the Southern Methodist University Cox School of Business and also live-streamed to the comfort of wherever you want to watch. All virtual DSW sessions, special events, and engagement opportunities will take place on Brushfire. Registration will also be held on Brushfire, regardless if you plan to attend in-person or virtually. We look forward to seeing you there!

DSW EVENTS

Over the past seven years, Dallas Startup Week has grown to an event with 21 tracks, evening special events, multiple summits including the Women of Innovation Summit, and Disrupt Dallas, a summit that focuses on advocating and celebrating minority entrepreneurs.

The 21 tracks will all take place during the day from Monday to Thursday in block schedules. Summits will also take place during the day on Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday.

All special events will be in the evening. No other sessions will take place at the same time as the special events as a way to bring the entire community together at one time.
