Community Leader of the Week: Taylor Chavez

Taylor Chavez is from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Taylor has participated and won in an adult Startup Weekend then went on to organize the first Teen event. All organizers and attendees were under 18 years old.
She has also spoke on the TEDx stage and is behind Startup Teen.
“Startup Weekend is an event where people who have ideas can come together and meet other people and create a business around those ideas.”


“I know so many high school students who are innovate and intelligent, they have great ideas, and they’re tech savvy. All those ideas are untapped right now. But an event like Startup Weekend could help that.”
