Authentic Vienna

ViennaUP'23 - a startup festival that breathes authenticity.

The Vienna Business Agency hosts ViennaUP'23 -  the festival, which is populated by program partners hailing from all quarters of the local and international startup ecosystem. Events will cover everything from impact to smart cities, creative industries, tech, life sciences, manufacturing and more. Investors and promising startups will meet and match, and talents can explore Vienna’s landscape of opportunities.

The ViennaUP symbol is a horse rearing. This is partly a reference to Vienna’s world-famous Lipizzaner stallions at the Spanish Riding School, who are famed for their discipline, skill and grace at dressage. It also evokes the “Wild West” of the startup scene, which thrives thanks to the innovators, visionaries and risk-takers with the chutzpah to take a crazy idea and turn it into something grand.

Whatever your role in the business ecosystem, ViennaUP is the place to make the right connections – especially if your goal is a go-to-market or investment in DACH or CEE.
