UPRISE Festival aims to misbehave back in Amsterdam. Born in Amsterdam our festival puts people first, technology second. Promising no public wifi for the 3000 attendees, no guest speaker talks and no apps to distract you, simply deliver on showcasing 120 inventive, innovative young companies, 8 Stages of content, Works Spaces, Mentorships and parties.

The festival mixes music 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).
