SiWeek brings together Stamford’s driving commercial forces: musicians, artists, restaurants, non-profits, educational, technology, entrepreneurial and financial organizations, from the individual to the institutional level. The intent is to promote awareness, collaboration, and inspiration of new ideas and connections. Our ultimate goal for SiWeek is to build a vibrant hub of technological, creative, and economic innovation for the betterment of Stamford and the surrounding communities.
The event formats and frequency encourage new and rekindled relationships. From Startup Weekend to the Open Houses and live music there is something for everyone to enjoy. Our hackathons and jams bring together tomorrow’s talent. And spark new ideas, relationships, and connections.
For centuries, compensation and benefits alone were the driving forces of employee retention. But today we demand more from our jobs. Much more. Connection to community is more standard than bonus. Mission, vision, purpose and impact now define what it means to “engaged” at work.
Through SiW, participants are exposed to individuals, organizations and ideas that promise to be completely new and different. Plan to meet new people from many different paths and forge relationships that will expand your thinking and last a lifetime.
