Upstream Festival 2021


We created two amazing sessions with some fabulous speakers for this week-long event at the Stadshaven Brouwerij venue.





Upstream Festival 2021

September 21 – Talent Day

Workshop 1 : Reinvent Yoursel

Are you on the right track in life? A big yet important question. Together, we looked for YOUR answer to this question during this session. We aimed to support you in finding your “why” and offer a moment to look inwards, a moment to reinvent yourself. Professionals who successfully pivoted their careers shared their personal stories. These stories touched upon their drivers for change, deepest dreams, and a dose of resilience.

September 23 – Market Day

Innovation Bridge: Your Opportunities in the USA: Miami and Curacao

Venture Café’s Innovation Bridge program is a series of special events that create a bridge between cities in which Venture Café is active. The goal of the event was to get an insider’s perspective into the ecosystems, gain understanding of business opportunities and to support collaboration between players in these ecosystems. This time Venture Café Rotterdam collaborated with its Global network to offer insights into the ecosystems of USA, Miami and Dutch Caribbean.


At this event we focused on “CONNECTION” by bringing key innovation players together and connected them with you to support you in your mission to make things happen in these markets.
