ViennaUP’23 is a decentralized community-driven festival blooming in the heart of Europe. Initiated by the Vienna Business Agency, this exciting adventure connects startup ecosystems, businesses, founders, investors, tech enthusiasts, creatives, and visionaries.

The international orientation is reflected by the last year’s tremendous success, with over 10,000 participants from 67 countries visiting 60 events around Vienna. This year, we are looking forward to a nine-day experience emerging out of the cooperation with 30+ program partners, resulting in 50+ opportunities to network, pitch, invest, develop and hack the code.

The ViennaUP’23 offers a program focused on six main topics, tailored to your needs and intended for participants who want to:

• Invest brilliantly : Events for those looking for brilliant startup ideas, valuable personal connections, incredible teams and promising opportunities.

• Find investors: Pitch your big idea, network with investors and hear from entrepreneurs and experts from super-succesful enterprises.

• Skill up and scale up: Workshops and coachings for founders and innovators who want to learn in order to grow.

• Discover new tech: If tech gets you fired up, consider these events and explore what local and international innovators have been up to within the last year.

• Impact the future: This is all about people, planet and profit. Meet and exchange with other purpose-driven startups and investors.

• Experience culture and technology: These events are all about the interplay of arts, digital tech, and business.

How to attend and what to expect

Entry to the majority of festival events requires a cost-free registration, while other highlights offer paid tickets in return for exclusive access to just the right networks. In both cases, tickets go quickly!

Besides the vast array of events that are part of the regular program, with workshops, fairs, pitching sessions, and B2B opportunities, the "ViennaUP Homebase" at the city center (Karlsplatz) is the a central meeting spot each evening for any and all festival participants. Participants can meet up and sample local food, drinks, music and Vienna vibes while getting to know new people from across the international startup ecosystem.

The ViennaUP Café Spaces – in cooperation with four historic and fashionable Viennese cafes – allow participants to enjoy free coffee and WiFi at the city’s original co-working spaces, seven days a week. And for startups hoping to pick the brains of experts, investors, and serial entrepreneurs in a relaxed atmosphere, the ViennaUP Coffee House Sessions are a must-do experience.
