The third annual Columbus Startup Week will take particular note of Columbus as the winner of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Smart City competition, with a half-dozen programs focusing on some aspect of the program that will develop the city into the nation’s proving ground for intelligent transportation systems.

More than 70 speakers will be on hand for the event that runs through Friday.
