In spring 2021, with the arrival of ViennaUP'21, a new kind of startup event, Vienna will find itself at the centre of the international startup scene.
With Vienna UP'21, the startup scene is providing an important impetus for business
From April 27th to May 12th, under the umbrella of ViennaUP'21, over 40 local and international partners will assemble for events with a wide variety of focuses. The largest startup event to date held in Central and Eastern Europe, will take place across the whole of Vienna and aims to place the city in the international spotlight of the start-up scene.
ViennaUP’21 will be taking place, whatever happens. The plans have been set up in such a way that the event can happen directly on site as well as in digital space.
Two weeks marked by booming topics
ViennaUP'21 will be launched with the international digital festival 4GAMECHANGERS, to take place in the Marx Halle from April 27th. ViennaUP'21 has already been attracting considerable international interest too. Renowned startup formats have already confirmed their participation, so Wired Pulse / Wired UK - one of the most important tech conferences worldwide - is going to be taking place outside London for the first time, while the Female Founders are planning an international business leader conference. For the investors, the program also includes International Investor Dinners.
The ViennaUP'21 program focuses on current topics, such as smart cities & clean tech, creative industries, health tech & life sciences, smart manufacturing as well as blockchain, big data & AI: all areas in which Vienna is ideally positioned as a business location, and ready to score points with model companies. The first program details will be announced on viennaup.com from November 2020.
Disclaimer: Due to Corona safety measures, ViennaUP had to be canceled this year (2020). The plan is to definitely let ViennaUP'21 take place in any case though. Therefore, the preparations are running in hybrid formats. We regularly provide information on the current status at viennaup.com
