Firestarters | UPRISE Festival Europe 2018

FIRESTARTERS

One of our Content tracks for our Tech Festival

17 – 18th October, Dublin, Ireland

The era of Startup disruptors is evolving. Governments have built support structures and corporates are deploying accelerators and capitalising on the wealth of Startup talent in their ecosystems. With competition at it’s peak and resources more plentiful than ever we explore what industries are ripe for disruption and who is leading the charge.

FIRESTARTERS SPEAKERS

The first Speakers to be announced

WHAT WE WILL TOUCH UPON

A NEW FUNDING FRONTIER

Funding used to be the sole proprietor of Investment firms and Venture Capitalists. Not any more. Today we have ICOs running riot with Crowdfunding and non traditional investment firms seeing a different way to invest in teams. What is the new Status Quo and who will survive this shakeup?

BUDGET SENSITIVE MARKETING

In the advent of data powered Marketing we have dived straight into the new world of personalized advertising and Influencer backed products. With GDPR in full swing what product and marketing opportunities have presented themselves in this era of the ‘right to be forgotten’.

THE TALENT MAGNET

Learning to develop and design is well in hand in our education systems and creating more and more talent. But how does a Startup stay ahead of the recruitment spend of the multinationals and corporate big dogs?

JUMPING CONTINENTS

Growth is fantastic. But what happens when you see the need to jump into a very different business pond? How do you find entry points and networks that will help you get a foothold in new foreign markets that you need to keep on that growth path?

THE BIGGER PICTURE

Governments and local authorities have become super Startup supporters. Which ecosystems in Europe (and beyond) are thriving and what are they doing differently to create a supportive and resource rich Startup ecosystem?
