Europe’s Tech Festival Returns
October 18th, Dublin
Six months after the Amsterdam edition, UPRISE Tech Festival returned to Dublin with 500 companies, 200 Founder Mentors and 128 world class Speakers such as Anne Boden CEO of Starling Bank to UNILAD Legend Founder Liam Harrington to explore the culture of Dublin and the festival itself.
The Four brand new Speaker Stages featured content from ESports, Blockchain, ICO’s to Personalisation in Music with the VP of Warner Music and VP of Deezer Europe. 66 Hours of content from panels to workshops kept attendees fully occupied for the entire day and well into the night.
The UPRISE Festival mantra is ‘People First, Tech Second’ and nowhere is this more exemplified by the theme of our sixth festival ‘The Migration of People, Money and Thinking’. Continuing a commitment to no-wifi and no distracting event apps, the RDS was primed for intimate conversations and worthwhile, valuable networking.
Our proud partners this year were KBC Bank, Dublin City Council, Enterprise Ireland, IDA, Bank of Ireland, RTE, Silicon Republic and Stelfox who provided content, mentorships and (of course) enjoyed the relaxed nature of the event.
This edition saw 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. Startups to scale-ups populated the marketplace with Enterprise partners subsidizing clustered stands and offering resources to the growing companies.
October 2018 sees another the festival returning to Dublin for the 7th Edition!
‘We provide a unique Vibe of a festival (not conference) where we put attendees together not separate them with technology’. Paul O’Connell (Founder)
