The region's premier celebration of innovation, technology and entrepreneurship.
September 18-28th, 2019
FastFWD Conference September 27th
Join us for a full day of speakers, events, and our closing keynote ceremony. Revel and network late into the evening at our Oktobeerfest collaboration with Half Full Brewery. Event content is organized into 5 distinct tracks:
- Emerging Technology
- Entrepreneurs & Startups
- Digital Media
- Food & Beverage
Our 2019 calendar is starting to take its final shape! Starting with lunches, track breakouts, and the opening show the week then quickly builds up to our Demo Day, Shark Tank and main event, The FastFWD Conference.
Beginning with our marketing launch in April, we’ll be announcing new speakers, events, venues and performers each week. Be sure to stay tuned and check back regularly for exciting news and updates. Our work with popup spaces and venues means we’ll be announcing new events all the way through August!
Tickets & Registration
Many SiW events are completely free and open to the public. These include events like Startup Weekend, our Popup Gallery, and more.
Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, most premium tickets are highly subsidized. This means our ticket prices are about 25% of the market rate for comparable events. If this year is anything like last year, many events will sell out.
Be sure to get your ticket as soon as the ‘early-bird release’ is announced in April!
- Some SiW events like our Kickoff Show, Oktobeerfest, and others carry expenses or are done with partners. As such, we must charge a nominal fee to keep SiW sustainable.
- The FastFWD conference on 9/27 is SiW's main event. This full-day of learning and inspiration features speakers, companies and concepts leading their industries and fields.
- This is your one-stop-shop for everything SiW. Not only will you receive a conference pass with all the benefits, you'll have access to all premium events at no charge. In addition, you'll be invited to our VIP reception and All-Access only events.
A Look Back at SiW 2018
With over 50 events and 3,000 tickets sold or claimed, last year was a grand success thanks to you, our community.
Our kickoff show at Stamford Town Center created the momentum and excitement that set the stage for our event series. From there, dozens of events featured themes like blockchain, sustainability, learning and training, and much more.
