150 STARTUPS, 18 WORKSHOPS, 7 PANELS, BUSKERS, PARTIES AND JOBS
UPRISE Festival aims to misbehave on October 20th in the RDS Arena Dublin. This tech festival born in Amsterdam puts people first, technology second. Promising no public wifi for the 2000 attendees, no big guest speakers and no apps to lose yourself in, simply deliver on showcasing 150 inventive, innovative young companies, practical workshops and panels from Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Salesforce, Freelance.com and Seedrs to mention just a few.
The festival adds Irish buskers 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 Irish 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). Bank of Ireland and Dublin City Council help drive the festival to demonstrate all the opportunity of technology to greater Ireland and Europe.
