On May 31, 2022, the Rotterdam Metropolitan area will transform into a hub of innovation and entrepreneurship, as startups, scale-ups, investors, and students meet up to make a positive impact on the world. The Upstream Festival is provided by upstream, who offer new markets and talent to entrepreneurs who want to scale their business.

The event will last three days in total. However, for our tenants, the second day might be the most interesting. That day, the topic is all about meeting new talent and promoting your business to new and upcoming experts in the field. See the full schedule for Talent Day below:

Talent Day – 1 June

  • 14:00 – 17:30    Career Fair: Find a scale-up job
  • 14:30 – 17:30    Unconference: How to attract and retain the best talent in the greater Rotterdam region
  • 14:30 – 17:30    Fireside chats
  • 17:30 – 18:30    Talent Day: Network drinks

To attend the events on the Upstream Festival, a three-day pass must be acquired. Note that this pass will only grant you the ability to attend the events at BIRD Rotterdam. For the City events, one must register separately.
