In Boise, small businesses are no joke, and entrepreneurs are encouraged to move here, adding value and creating jobs in the process. Enter Boise Startup Week, where future captains of industry can learn from the pros about crafting and presenting the perfect business pitch; attend tech salons and workshops; and hear from the likes of Tech Stars Ventures Managing Partner Mark Solon, Sun Valley Institute for Resilience Executive Director Aimee Christensen and more. Catch roundtables on recruiting talent, emerging technologies and raising money, and unwind with a Boise State University vs. Brigham Young University football game watch party. And don't miss the VR Bash featuring keynote speaker Robert Scoble. All events are free, courtesy of sponsors (including Boise Weekly) but space is limited for some so RSVP ASAP.
