What to expect? - General information

Connect Day 2022 is the main matchmaking event of ViennaUP’22 for Start-ups, Corporates/SMEs and Investors. Thanks to the great success of last year for the first time the event will be an all-day hybrid event.

Connect Day is not a typical buyer meets seller event - It's all about innovation. It focuses on corporates seeking for innovative start-up products and services (innovation inflow). In addition, the event supports selected start-ups to get in touch with investors focusing on early-stage and VC investment. 

The day kicks off with an Investors Breakfast organized by AVCO. At this on-site networking event, international investors have the chance to connect with Vienna-based VCs, PEs & Business Angels, to team up for international co-investments and to learn more about investment opportunities in Austria.

The event "Connect Day" continues at Palais Berg and offers all day matchmaking opportunities, exciting pitches, master classes and a lot more for start-ups, corporates and investors.
