What are the return trip details?

The Startup Train is one way only. We ran it both ways our first year but we learned that most folks needed flexibility for their return dates. We have discount codes coming soon for VIA and Porter for booking return travel.

Startup Train Superheroes on Slack!

All Startup Train Superheroes are added to our exclusive Slack instance where you are can connect with other passengers, sponsors and mentors prior to departure! This is the best place to keep up-to-date on all Startup Train happenings. You’ll receive an invite shortly after purchasing your tickets. Contact us if you bought a ticket but haven’t received an invitation.
