main event

The main event will consist of a demo booth area of our collaborators and startups, engaging workshops and TalkUp side-event. The main event will culminate in the stage show.

DEMO BOOTH AREA

The demo booth area is built for next-level networking where industry leading companies and innovative startups share their entrepreneurial mindset and experiences with students. You will also be able to share your own ideas with other students and get valuable connections. We encourage you to do this - maybe you will meet your upcoming business partner in our event!

WORKSHOPS

You will be able to develop your skills in hands-on workshops that are arranged by industry leading companies and experts. Our goal is for everyone to leave the event with a broader mindset, concrete new skills and empowering experiences.

TalkUp

TalkUp side-event will be held during main event. In TalkUp you will hear about venture funding from the perspective of venture capitalists and startups.

STAGE SHOW

Inspiring speakers take over the stage to share stories behind their success and encourage you to become the best version of yourself and to develop an entrepreneurial mindset of your own.

AFTERPARTY

At FallUp Afterparty, you can continue to network with our collaborators, startups and other visitors in a relaxed environment. We truly know how to throw a party that you will never forget.
