UPRISE Festival Dublin
Six months after its Amsterdam edition, the UPRISE Festival is returning to Dublin, bringing together 500 companies, 200 UPRISE Festival Dublin'Founder' Mentors, 128 world class speakers and an estimated audience of 3000 to the ‘People First, Tech Second’ festival.

As we are attending the event as media partners this Thursday, (26.10.17) we thought it only wise to give you all a brief overview of the festival. 

Continuing a commitment to no-wifi and no event apps, the UPRISE Festival recently announced that it was relocating its main annual event to Ireland.

With four stages set for intimate conversation, workshops panels and valuable networking, an estimated 66 hours of content from 128 product-focused speakers will keep attendees fully occupied for the entire day and into the night-time, with content themes ranging from ESports, Blockchain, ICO’s to Personalisation in Music.

80 startups and scale-ups will also populate a marketplace area with Enterprise partners subsidising clustered stands and offering resources to the growing companies. Some of the UPRISE Festival key-speakers include:

Anne Boden
- Founder & CEO at @StarlingBank

Mark Little - Founder of @Storyful, Eamonn Carey - MD Techstars UPRISE Festival Dublin

Ian Eliis - Director of Microsoft Startup Growth Partners
