PyCon Pittsburgh. April 15-23, 2020.

Startup Row

Startup Row is where early-stage companies go to show off what they’re doing with Python at PyCon US.

At PyCon US, we reserve a special place for startup companies. Startup Row companies receive complimentary conference passes, booth space during the main conference (April 17-18, 2020), access to the Jobs Fair (April 19, 2020), and all the best of what PyCon has to offer. PyCon 2020 is in Pittsburgh, PA and we hope to see you there!

So, what’s in it for you and your startup?

But don’t take our words for it. Here is what some have to say about their participation in StartUp Row:

“PyCon Startup Row was our coming-out party to the Python community. We got to introduce ourselves to thousands of enthusiastic and well-connected Pythonistas, and met important customers that made a major change to our business.” – Anvil (SR‘16)

“Due to the magnitude of PyCon, we made a big bet to send our whole company to the conference and the investment paid off! The interest and openness from every person that came over to our booth to say hi was incredible and it’s been challenging to find something like that again. We met many companies, some of them now our biggest and most engaged customers.” – Blameless (SR‘18)

“Startup Row was our first time to pitch the company to the community. We got some tough love and learned a lot from it. Going through Startup Row made us stronger.” – PlusPlus (SR‘18)

“Startup Row was a great opportunity for us to run our very first conference booth, to meet incredible people and to have engaging, productive and inspiring conversations about our product. The audience was super relevant and friendly, and our overall experience at Pycon was fantastic. Highly recommended to anyone and happy to provide more details.” – Iterative AI, (SR‘19)

“As a first-timer, and a non-coder (but use python for data science), it was just an amazing experience. Everyone was extremely friendly & sincere, and it was special to be a part of Startup Row. Connected us with some great potential talent as well as amazing folks & friends to learn from. Plus everyone was great with feedback, which is always helpful!” – Graffiti, (SR‘19)

“As a developer focused startup that’s built on Python, we had a great time being part of Startup Row. It gave us an opportunity to meet with hundreds of potential users and get feedback on our product. – Bite AI, (SR‘19)
