The international spotlight is back on the city in 2020 with a new one-week mega-event for the startup scene. After all, local companies, investors and talent no longer need to shy away from comparisons with the rest of Europe: the local scene is one of the most diverse and fastest growing startup communities in the world.
From 11 to 17 May 2020, the whole city will live and breathe Vienna UP’20. For a whole week, Vienna will be providing an international stage for companies, investors and talents with more than 50 workshops, conferences, networking events and talks. More than 40 partners – comprising key players in the local startup scene as well as well-known international participants – will participate in the one-week programme under the umbrella of Vienna UP’20, showcasing the innovative potential of the city to an international audience.
The new format will emphasise the booming sectors of technology & FinTech and health and life sciences, as well as the topics of social entrepreneurship and Industry 4.0. These are all sectors in which the business location Vienna is already very well positioned, and the city will be able to impress the international audience with outstanding companies.
With more than 20,000 visitors expected to attend, Vienna UP’20 will be the biggest international startup event ever to take place in Austria.
