The daily Upstream Talkshow is the festival’s must-see show! 

Get some of the highlights from the last 24 hours of programming from our co-creators. Have a sneak peak of what the next 24 hours will bring. Hear from experts, policy makers and above all, your peers - starting, scaling and seasoned entrepreneurs alike - about their business insights, the trends and developments they deem important to watch, leadership skills they value, and their most essential lessons learned that have contributed to running and expanding their business successfully and sustainably.  


Every show will address two themes, of which one will be focused on the more traditional business resources (ecosystems, talent, market, capital), and the other will look at leading business trends (smart energy, smart digital, circular and impact entrepreneurship). 

In this Special Edition of the Upstream Talkshow, we will also announce the winners of the Unlocked Challenges. Find more information on the challenges to create more future-proof business models, click here
