Connect Day 2022

Matching startups with corporates and investors

Connect Day 2022 is the main matchmaking event of ViennaUP’22 for Start-ups, Corporates/SMEs and Investors. Because of the great success of last year for the first time the event will be an all-day hybrid event.

Connect Day is not a typical buyer meets seller event. It's all about innovation. On the one hand, it focuses on corporates seeking for innovative start-up products and services (innovation inflow). On the other hand, the event supports selected start-ups to get in touch with investors focusing on early-stage and VC investment. 


Connect Day supports Corporates/SMEs aiming for innovation and collaboration with start-ups as well as investors seeking start-up investment opportunities. Please take note of our target-groups and non-target groups before registering for the event.
