Boiseans have always worked together to build a better future for our city. In that collaborative spirit, the City of Boise, business leaders and community partners launched Trailhead, Boise’s startup hub where entrepreneurs can connect to the people and resources needed to succeed. At the corner of 8th and Myrtle Streets in Downtown Boise, Trailhead brings together a network of mentors, accomplished experts, and founders with the passion to help Boise’s best ideas flourish. Launched by Mayor Bieter in 2015 with an initial investment by several successful Boise entrepreneurs, Trailhead has gained remarkable momentum with its affordable, high-value memberships and easy, accessible atmosphere. Trailhead was quickly invited to join the Startup Federation, a global network of the world’s top startup hubs and incubators – providing local members access to world class space and the best of worldwide programming.
Trailhead is a place where Boise’s growing community of entrepreneurs and innovators connect to share ideas, learn relevant skills, and gain access to expertise and capital providers that help navigate the road to success. It is a place where people with diverse backgrounds and experiences can come together to create great things. Trailhead was patterned after successful models across the country, and adapted for Boise’s unique culture of opportunity.
