Start SLC Staff Pick

When: Thursdays-Saturdays, 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Continues through Jan. 31 2015
Local technology and business website Beehive Startups is launching a daunting venture of its own: a grass-roots startup festival. For three days, StartSLC will take over The Gateway and various venues around Salt Lake City to give business owners and potential owners the opportunity to learn how to launch and improve their own businesses. The festival has been split into two areas: the Main Stage and Festival Events. The Main Stage will host lectures and workshops, such as Surviving Sharktank (where your ideas are put under a microscope and given criticism) and Startup Legal (where you'll learn the ins & outs to assure everything you're doing is by the book). The events will take you around The Gateway and downtown Salt Lake City for an array of experiences like the Co-working Crawl to explore workspaces, or Cyber Security Hackers, where your laptop and mobile devices will face different hacking methods to test their security. Throughout the three-day event, several guest speakers from local businesses will give lectures and keynote speeches, hoping to inspire people to further their own business efforts. Notable names include Josh Little (Qzzr), Matt Berry (Orca Health), Sunny Washington (Ardusat), Kreg Peeler (SpinGo), Karl Sun (Lucid), Hana Saleh (27 Spirits), Spencer Hall (KSL News), Angela Brown (SLUG Magazine), Travis Wilson (Jones Waldo) and Clark Stacey (Wild Works).
