Fest-UP is Barcelona’s startup community festival – an opportunity for the entire Barcelona Startup Ecosystem to share their knowledge, showcase their projects and make new connections within our vibrant entrepreneurial community.
In May 2014, more than 3.000 people attended at least one of the 45 events held in 22 locations across Barcelona – all focused on one goal: Uniting Our Entrepreneurial Ecosystem.
To keep the spirit going strong, Fest-UP Fall Edition will take place on Thursday & Friday, November 27th & 28th to celebrate the official launch of the Barcelona Growth Centre. In order to make an event such as Fest-UP possible, we reached out to key stakeholders in the Barcelona Startup Community. The following organizations continue to show their support and help make Barcelona one of the most exciting and attractive cities in the world to launch a business!
