People First, Tech Second

The UPRISE Festival mantra is ‘People First, Tech Second’ and nowhere is this more exemplified by the theme for our sixth festival ‘The Migration of People, Money and Thinking’. Continuing a commitment to no-wifi and no distracting event apps, the stages are set for intimate conversations and worthwhile, valuable networking.

Our proud partners this year are KBC Bank, Dublin City Council, Enterprise Ireland, IDA, Bank of Ireland, RTE, Silicon Republic and Stelfox who provide content, mentorships and enjoy the relaxed nature of the event.

This edition will see 4 new Content Stages with 66 hours of content dedicated to expert panels, workshops, firesides and investment sessions with over 128 product-focused Speakers on stage during the day-long event. 80 Startups to scale-ups will populate the marketplace with Enterprise partners subsidising clustered stands and offering resources to the growing companies.

UPRISE Festival Europe started in 2015 and is working towards its 6th edition. Catering to over 16,000 attendees previously and over 277 Startup companies. UPRISE finished its Amsterdam edition with great success and a sweet promise to something even bigger in October 2017 in Dublin!
