Vienna, 3.6. - 9.6.2024

ViennaUP'24: The Startup Festival

ViennaUP is a city-wide festival of entrepreneurship and innovation, created by the startup community for the world. Events are designed and hosted by 35+ program partners, and brought together with the support of the Vienna Business Agency into a week-long festival. These are scattered around Vienna, inviting you to explore the city, get to know the Viennese startup ecosystem, and mingle with founders, investors, talents and enablers from around the world.

Because ViennaUP is a decentralized festival, each event is ticketed separately - check out the program page for details. Many events are free to attend, while others have paid tickets. Some may require an application. Please note: ViennaUP is happening mostly in the physical realm or in hybrid form, while other are breaking through into the metaverse.
