About Us

The Beginning of Trailhead

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 (TH) was launched in 2015 based on the vision of the founders, the city of Boise, and key business partners throughout the Treasure Valley.

Our Vision

Trailhead is driven to provide a growing community of creators, thinkers and
entrepreneurs, and thereby fueling economic prosperity and social equity in our community. Our vision is to democratize access to entrepreneurship to community members from all walks of life.  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.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help entrepreneurs succeed, by providing them with the knowledge, tools, resources and networks they need to take their ideas and ventures to the next level.
