Destination Startup® is a collaboration among leading research universities and federal laboratories across the Intermountain West to showcase the best companies from our innovation ecosystem.

Since its inception in 2018, more than 700 investors, business leaders and more from across the country have attended Destination Startup®. Over 50 new startup companies have been launched and collectively, and they have raised over $200 million to date.

Destination Startup® helps innovative researchers and faculty ready themselves for the process of fundraising and the commercialization of their technology. This year, we will be offering both virtual and in-person options to attend for both registrants and participants.

  • The 2022 main event website will remain accessible for 6 months after the event for attendees.
