Upstream Festival

From 21 to 27 September, the Rotterdam Metropolitan area transforms into the place where founders, students, investors, policy makers and bold corporates come together to make a positive impact in the world.

This is where you meet, learn and connect through a plethora of events, carefully curated and focusing on individual topics with a common goal: enabling innovations that will drive the transition to the next economy. An economy that is digital, carbon neutral, circular and inclusive. Driven by you. The changemakers.

Have a look yourself, get inspired and share this festival with your colleagues and friends.


Matchmaking & Networking

On Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020, the Department for International Trade in the Netherlands and Innovation Bridge Europe will organise a curated matchmaking & networking event for the British Green Growth clusters.

15 minutes meetings will be scheduled with counterparts, an unique opportunity for you to find your international partners for technology, innovation and business.

The focus of the matchmaking will be on the following topics;

  • Energy
  • Smart Cities
  • Circular Economy
  • Mobility
  • Finance

What we need from you?

We want to get to know you to be successful with Upstream. For this we have a number of questions prepared. We want to know what is on your mind, what your interests are and what you bring. This enables us to continuously perform a good match on the evolving program and invitees, before, during and after this festival.

If your answers are unclear or insufficient, our experts will contact you, to curate the best possible matchmaking.


Department for International Trade

In these challenging times, the UK’s Department for International Trade wants to support British business in maintaining their access to foreign export and investment markets. With physical events and trade missions being no longer possible, we are proud to announce a couple of initiatives to replicate them in a virtual space. As such, we are looking forward to partner with Innovation Bridge Europe and the Upstream fesitval to deliver this matchmaking and networking event for you.

The Department for International Trade (DIT) in the Netherlands provides trade and investment services and practical support. We help UK companies succeed in the Netherlands, and Dutch companies set up and invest in the UK. We offer expertise and contacts through our extensive network of specialists in the UK, and staff in the British Embassy in the Netherlands.
