Attend Twin Cities Startup Week


Be Inspired

Twin Cities Startup Week is one of the largest free entrepreneurial events in the United States. Over 17,000 attendees participate in 200+ events focused on educating, networking, and inspiring Twin Cities entrepreneurs.

The Fly-in Program started as a radical hypothesis that if we asked quality candidates to join us for TCSW to see a glimpse of what the region has to offer, they would relocate here to live, work, and play. We discovered our hypothesis was correct.


The First-ever Virtual TCSW Fly-in Program

This year, the program will look a bit different as we take a virtual-first strategy to keep our community safe. There is so much amazing content that gets shared during TCSW, we didn’t think we could cram it into five virtual days. We’ve decided to spread the week across three weeks in September with tracks taking place every Tuesday and Thursday and signature events sprinkled throughout. Fly-in participants will get immersed in and connected with the Minnesota startup scene from the comfort of their own homes all month long.

Get the VIP Treatment

Fly-in Program participants receive a VIP pass to the entire month including special networking events. We’ll help you create a bespoke itinerary of activities that will show you the best of the Twin Cities.

Community, Culture, & Career Fair

In addition to free VIP access to TCSW, Fly-in participants receive a curated schedule of content just for them. Network with hiring companies and learn about all aspects of the Twin Cities from housing to schools to art and culture at our Community, Culture, & Career Fair on Monday, Sept. 14 and weekly Fly-in Meetups during the month.

Find Your Next Big Investment

Many of today’s Fortune 100 companies were once startups launched in the Twin Cities. As a Fly-in participant you’ll have the opportunity to connect with entrepreneurs who may be building the next Target, Medtronic, 3M, Best Buy, Cargill… you get the point.
