Techweek exists to spread wealth creation to diverse places and people by supporting the emergence of local Hero Companies.
- Spreading wealth creation through tech entrepreneurship: Techweek believes tech entrepreneurship is a powerful force to spread the economic and social benefits of wealth creation
- Diverse places and people: Techweek believes that there is a social imperative to help support the development of emerging tech ecosystems in non-traditional communities outside the valley.
- Hero Companies: Techweek believes substantial and sustainable businesses, which we call “Hero Companies” – are powerful economic engines that concentrates and incubates resources, capital and talent that boosts technology ecosystems. We believe recognizing and supporting the development of Hero Companies is the most effective approach to build sustainable technology ecosystems
