What is Wichita Startup Week?
In partnership with Techstars, a worldwide network to help entrepreneurs succeed, Wichita Startup Week powered by Koch Industries is 5 days made up of 40 free sessions to help you turn your idea into an item, your app into an investment, or your segment into a star. Comprised of four different tracks, you’ll learn the appropriate skills and strategies relevant to the stage you’re in. Plus, there’s a Hackathon, a Trade Show, a Pitch Competition, and tons of networking and fun to go along with this awesome event.

Wichita Startup Week powered by Koch Industries is a hybrid event. There will be a virtual option for all main speaker events. In-person events will require masks.
