Boulder Startup Week kicks off Monday to celebrate Boulder’s unique startup community.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the free, five-day event that helps bring the community together in an inclusive, educational, and engaging way, said Andrew Hyde, the founder of Boulder Startup Week. It will have about 10,000 people in attendance, 1,000 speakers and about 350 events at multiple locations in the city, he said. It was started with the idea that entrepreneurs deserve their own conference, he said.

The first Boulder Startup Week had 55 events with an average of 10 attendees, he said. This year’s 350 events will draw about 100 attendees on average, he said. “It’s a community first conference.”

The conference offers multiple tracks that include, among others, robotics, the internet of things, data science, cannabis, education, energy, food, marketing and energy.
