After an all-online Startup Week in 2020, Startup Week 2021 will present a mix of in-person and online events.

Two winners were announced during the JumpStart Challenge Pitch Competition on Thursday night, with each winner receiving cash prizes and the opportunity to build out their solution to the challenges presented.
