142 Speakers, 120 Exhibitors, 3000 Attendees and 6 Content Stages

UPRISE Festival Europe 5 Thursday 20th April 2017 Amsterdam 9 – 18.30

UPRISE Festival aims to misbehave on April 20th in Amsterdam. This tech festival born in Amsterdam puts people first, technology second. Promising no public wifi for the 3-5000 attendees, no one-way talks and no apps to lose yourself in, simply deliver on showcasing inventive, innovative young companies, 6 Stages of fresh content from Linkedin, Microsoft, Google, Adobe and ABN AMRO to mention just a few.

The theme this year focuses on ‘Propaganda and Product’ where we have an Innovation stage with a Democracy Hackathon by Flux London. The responsibility of the media, Brand advertising, Marketing and self promotion, Sextech and New Recruitment.

The brand new 42 hours of Content Stages from Sales to Recruitment bring profile panelists from all over the world together. Workshops, Panels, Talkshops, Burn sessions and Special Activities make up the 48 hours of content throughout the day including sessions to hack politics, discover the company who redesigned the apple retail interiors and get sneak peaks into Adobe’s new products while discovering Europe’s hottest growing companies on our marketplace floor. On stage we 124 Stage Speakers have founders and CEO’s from Monzo London, N26 Berlin, Freshlabs, Galaxonic, The scale-up group, Geektastic, Endiet Capital and Rockstart Accelerator.

The festival adds bands and food trucks to this relaxed environment of CEO’s and Talent to make new young business more approachable, investable and connected. The epic Startup pitch battle pits 6 international startups against 6 Netherlands based Startups in a frenzy of audience questions and reactions as they make the decision of what company they want to win (no judging panel here).
As founder Paul O’Connell said ‘Europe is calling for a alternative to these exclusive tech parade conferences and that’s what we offer’.

UPRISE Festival Europe started in Amsterdam in 2015 and this is the fifth edition. Catering to over 16,000 attendees previously and over 277 Startup companies. UPRISE just finished its first Dublin edition with great success and a sweet promise to return in November 2017.
