This year, you will find the networking area, fireside chats, deepdives, pitch competition, roundtables and much more in our main venue. And we expect over 45 side events. Plenty of opportunities to choose from. Detailed agenda will be available 4 weeks before the event.

We've listened to your suggestions. This year, we program a full day of side events for you to explore the ecosystem (Day Zero). And for super effective networking, we've combined our investor house and meet the buyer in our main venue from dusk till dawn (Day One).

Your Upstream ticket gives you access to the main venue and the online community. City events are independently organized and handle their own registration, allowing you to sign up without a ticket for Upstream.

Upstream is a non-profit startup event that started in 2020, as an umbrella event for the best our startup ecosystem has to offer. It is made possible by Up!Rotterdam and co-creation partners across the Netherlands. We thank our partners for their continued support.

You may purchase a startup, investor, attendee or student ticket. Please refer to the tickets for the requirements.

We have a limited number of meeting tables for investors and corporate buyers available in our main venue. Conditions apply. Please send an email to pj@uprotterdam.com for more information.
