ViennaUP’22 is a decentralised community-driven festival on innovation and entrepreneurship. All events are spread around the city and give you the chance to connect with people from different fields while also exploring the beauty of Vienna.

ViennaUP is curated by the Vienna Business Agency and brings you a selection of the most exciting events from our VIennaUP community. All listed events are stand-alone events created by our contributing partners from the ecosystem.

After a successful digital event in 2021, ViennaUP'22 will be a mix of onsite and online events. Safety comes first. If the situation remains safe in the end of May 22, we´re looking forward to welcoming a lot of you on site in Vienna.
Given the decentralised nature of the festival, all events are independent and will announce their respective setups accordingly via their links.
Relevant information will be disclosed on our program page (in February 2022).

The official language of ViennaUP'22 is English.

The programming of ViennaUP'22 is a work in progress. Have you got a great idea and want to get involved? Please reach out to our ViennaUP team via viennaup(at)viennabusinessagency.at

We think that being selected the World´s Most Liveable City for several years in a row is already pretty convincing.
However, there are even more good reasons: Vienna is well known for being a knowledge-based economy with high economic power and stability, and for having great access to top talents and excellent infrastructure connecting you with the rest of the world. With a human-centered approach towards innovation and its perfect location in the heart of Europe, Vienna is an excellent springboard for the purpose-drive companies of the future.
