Because exactly in this time of crisis the moment has come to look ahead. – Peter Hanke, Executive city councillor of finance, business, digital innovation and international affairs
Let`s talk startups – ViennaUp21
In spring 2021, it is worth paying attention to Vienna. The city, located in the heart of Europe, is preparing for a series of events that will bring together the entire Central and Eastern European start-up community. According to the press conference, innovation and investment are the two guiding forces and the main motivation. The aim of the organizers is to give entrepreneurs the opportunity to emerge stronger from the crisis.
Hybrid event concept
ViennaUp will not be one big conference, but will comprise many different venues with a total of 80 events. It will be a hybrid event with a strong digital presence. The aim is to bring 20,000 guests to Vienna in the two weeks (from 27 April to 12 May 2021), both physically and online. “No one knows today what May 2021 will look like. We only know that we want to have the best possible response to every situation.” – said Gerhard Hirczi, Managing Director of the Vienna Business Agency.
According to an article by the derBrutkasten, ViennaUp21 “will cover a wide range of topics. This includes AI, HealthTech, FinTech, Social Entrepreneurship, Blockchain, Smart City, and GreenTech.” In the interview with the organizers, the following topics were also mentioned here:
- Medical technology
- Visual computing
