Innovative Thinkers

Markets

There is still a month to apply for the 2-day Europe’s leading talent and tech festival UPRISE’s new 100Y programme where inventive thinkers will be matched with international brands and attending companies.

In particular, the Top 100 Young innovators under the age of 30 in Ireland and the United Kingdom will be awarded memberships for attending the 100Y programme for 1 year.

During the programme, new members will meet up with UPRISE Festival’s network partners which include international brands, mentors and investors.

Paul O’Connell, Founder and Director of UPRISE Festival, said:

100Y is deliberately not just for high-profile CEOs but for those individual designers, developers, business and communication professionals building their own small slice of the tech sphere. We want to nurture young talent and give them the opportunity to progress and grow their innovative ideas.

The initiative will take place over two days (17-18) in October during UPRISE Festival Europe, now in its seventh edition.
