Idaho Startup Weekends attract the best and brightest in the Boise community, therefore the event helps participants build long-lasting relationships with influential people. According to internal statistics from the organization, Startup Weekend held 260 events in 67 countries and startups incubated at its events received at least $30 million in outside funding last year alone.
