Startup Huddle


Startup Huddle is a program designed to help one entrepreneur at a time while strengthening the local ecosystem. Entrepreneurs discover solutions to the challenges they face through purposeful engagement with a broad array of voices from their local community.

The Startup Huddle format is consistent in each location: at a consistent meeting place, one or two early-stage startup founders give a six-minute presentation about their company to a diverse audience from their local community. Each presentation is followed by a 20-minute question and answer session where the community provides ideas, connections and feedback for the entrepreneur. By providing a monthly meet up for the local ecosystem, Startup Huddle builds community – one entrepreneur at a time.

During Global Entrepreneurship Week, we encourage people to explore entrepreneurship and provide them access to resources that help them along their entrepreneurial journey. Startup Huddle works with entrepreneurs and the communities that support them by empowering them with tools and resources to break down barriers standing in the way of starting and growing their businesses. Our goal is to bring Startup Huddle to communities across every country during GEW 2021.
