What we're about

Started in 2013 as the Harrisburg Startup Weekend, UPNEXT FEST has grown into eight days of events celebrating Central Pennsylvania technology companies, the organizations and meet-ups that support them and the outstanding people that make them happen! Each year, our tech community opens their doors, hosts events and rolls out the red carpet for both locals and visitors who are interested in learning more about the technology and startup scene in Central PA. Our 2017 lineup runs from October 14th through October 21st and is packed with daily events consisting of morning coffees, epic mentor office hours, TEDx Harrisburg, pitch contests, technology and learning conferences, technology meet-ups, open houses, happy hours, a Startup Movie Festival and Cocktail Party, a Technology Networking Event and a month-long hackathon.
