international startup festival

ujep –  ústí nad labem

23. october 2018

2PM – 10PM



Expo (CZ&EN)

You don’t have to just look at innovation as you stroll about. Touch it, try it, and taste it! This is one of the biggest interactive startup exhibitions in the region – breathtaking innovations in both technology and gastronomy


Success & Fuckup stories (CZ&EN)

Success is a source of inspiration, but a bad experience is still experience, and it’s a great thing to learn from. Come hear some suspenseful startup stories and get to know the startups up close and in person!

2:30PM–3:30PM and 4:30PM–6PM

Idea Generator (CZ) - Full capacity

We’ve yet to come up with a machine that can produce outstanding business ideas, but there’ll be no shortage of them at this workshop! Already know what kind of business you want to do, or how to improve your idea?


Startup Speed Dating (CZ&EN)

Want to work for a startup? Or maybe you’re looking for someone to come work for you? Be it fulltime or only temporary, with experience or no experience – if you’ve got the enthusiasm, come try your luck at speed dating. You never know who you might meet!


Startup Grill - Full Capacity

An evening where delicious food isn’t the only thing being grilled – the startups on stage will feel the heat too. Come watch passionate enterprisers, most of whom have been through the enterprise incubator, battle it out to win the interest of the both public and investors. There’ll also be an ‘open pitch’ segment for daring members of the public.


Find your way into the business world and win an iPhone as a bonus!

At Festup, you can compete for an iPhone 6s, Beats headphones and a JBL GO speaker. What’s it take to get to the winners’ podium? A business idea! Show up with an interesting idea, or find one during a workshop where we’ll be generating ideas. Enter your idea in the Myia mobile application and try to get as many people as possible excited about it! You’ll get one point for every like, and for every consultation with a company (and there will be no shortage of companies at Festup), you’ll get ten points. Earn the most points and come not only to pick up a fantastic gift but also to open the door to running your own business! You won’t find as much useful feedback anywhere else.

The main partner of the competition is Česká spořitelna.


Check out a video from previous events, at which we’ve had some interesting guests such as Google, Microsoft, an Apple trainer, YouTuber Jirka Král, the founder of Zásilovny.cz, and the successful food startups Konečně vývar and Tartaletka.
