House of Europe Festival

House of Europe Festival

Festival on creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Offline and online

The House of Europe Festival is an annual event, bringing together the creative community to establish ties and share insights on doing business in creative industries. The festival features key-notes from experts from the EU and Ukraine, individual consultations, expo zone displaying startups, information about our opportunities, networking with colleagues and potential business partners, and tons of inspiration.

We seek to shatter the geography of notable events in Ukraine and empower the regions. The first town to host the House of Europe Festival will be Rivne — a familiar post-soviet city in search of a new identity in the market dominated by creativity. Together with the local community we will gather startup CEOs, accomplished creative entrepreneurs, business mentors, and innovative economy policymakers from all over Europe.
