Applications are now open for UPRISE Festival’s new ‘100Y’ programme, an initiative that showcases top tech talent under the age of 30 in Ireland and the UK during UPRISE Festival Europe 2018.
The technology and talent festival, which is now in its seventh edition, will take place in one of Dublin’s most notable landmarks, the former Richmond Hospital on North Brunswick Street, over two days (17-18) in October.
‘100Y’ is one of the most ambitious talent hunts yet with a focus on finding young innovators with a vision and energy to deliver on their goals. The winning 100 will receive special invites to the UPRISE Festival where they can participate in content and meet with mentors.
These inventive thinkers will be matched with international brands and attending companies for meet-ups throughout the year, as well as inclusion in our new Networking App where they will learn of new technologies and opportunities.
Paul O’Connell, Director of UPRISE Festival, said: “100Y is deliberately not just for high-profile CEOs but for those individual designers, developers, business and communication professionals building their own small slice of the tech sphere. We want to nurture young talent and give them the opportunity to progress and grow their innovative ideas.”
The 100Y application page can be accessed on: https//uprisefestival.co/100y/ and the closing date for applications is 12pm, August 21st , 2018.
The program is supported by Dublin City Council, IDA and Failte Ireland.
