A few years ago, a group of experienced entrepreneurs came together with a vision to create a community where anyone with an idea can receive the mentoring and the experience needed to succeed in the startup world. Trailhead was launched in 2015 based on the vision of the founders, the city of Boise, and key business partners throughout the Treasure Valley.


Today’s Trailhead

Trailhead is home to over 350 inventors, builders, creators, and doers delivering new, better, faster products and businesses that make a difference. We’re committed to supporting them as they innovate for the future.

We are just getting started.

Tomorrow’s Opportunity

Trailhead is driven to provide a growing community of creators,thinkers and entrepreneurs. This is a place for anyone to become part of the community and to experience the excitement of starting something you believe in and to get the needed support along the way. We are the hub of the startup ecosystem, where business starts in Boise.
