Welcoming 7 Companies to Startup Row at PyCon US 2023

It's hard to believe that 2023 marks 20 years of PyCon US. From relatively modest beginnings to serving thousands of in-person attendees—and countless more who participate online and watch talks (sometimes years after they were given)—is a testament to the strength, diversity, and resilience of the Python community. Since 2011, PyCon US organizers have reserved a row of booths for early-stage technology companies doing new and interesting things with Python. Startup Row has been a fixture of PyCon US for over half the conference's run, and we're pleased to have given over 120 startups the opportunity to share what they're working on with the Python community.

PyCon US provides the opportunity and infrastructure; you bring your skills, humanity, and brainpower (oh! and don't forget your computer). For those
