Startup Campus London programme encourages young Hungarians living in the United Kingdom to develop their innovative entrepreneurial skills. Participants receive professional training that covers the most important topics of entrepreneurship, such as team design, target audience identification, market segregation, business model building, and pitching techniques. In the last two years, these young Hungarian talents received support at the Imperial College London in cooperation with the New Generation Center.
We are waiting for the applications of university students or young employees who have a startup idea or an already running startup and living in London or Great Britain. Applicants who get accepted to the project get 4 weeks long training free of charge in London. The workshops culminate with the Demo Day where the best teams get a chance to pitch in front of the professional jury of Hiventures. Hiventures offers a HUF 9m seed investment package for each team that can articulate a viable business model and pitch it at the end of the programme.
International teams can also apply to the programme if their team has at least one Hungarian member, who is a founder in the team.

„I came to England to study at the University of Sussex and have been working in London for three years on visual effects of big movies. I first joined the Startup Campus programme to meet with ambitious young people in London and to learn the basics of startups from mentors with professional business experience. I met a lot of creative and inspirational people, and I delved deeper into the economic side of things. It is a great opportunity to learn from such professionals!”
