Boise Entrepreneur Week kicks off next Monday at JUMP in downtown Boise.
This year, Boise Entrepreneurs Week will host 115 sessions that cover a wide array of topics from home construction to automation.
“It’s really intended to be a really wide swath of conversations where people are trying to be innovative, where they can come and find a piece of content that speaks to them in a pretty myriad of industries,” Nick Crabbs of BEW said. “That’s kind of been part of our ethos all along to support entrepreneurs as they go out and build new things. And I think this year is yet another example of us succeeding.”
The five-day event will feature some evergreen subjects like fundraising that have been covered in the past but will highlight relevant topics like home prices.
“Entrepreneurs always want to be getting advice about how to fundraise better or how to value your business better, or who to get good legal advice from, like that stuff’s pretty evergreen, you see us talking about that kind of stuff almost every year,” Crabbs said. “But, there are also new issues like home prices, and how we should be innovative in thinking about housing.“
There are also pitch competitions. This year Boise Entrepreneur Week is giving out over $300,000 in prize money. During the Trailmix event, for example, entrepreneurs will pitch their ideas for food or beverages and the winner will get $50,000 and shelf space at the Broadway Albertsons.
Upcoming panel discussions at this year’s Entrepreneur Week include healthcare in Idaho, financial prep, farming, and more.
