In February 2018, Enterprise Hungary will launch the Startup Campus V4 Global Tour, whereby innovative companies from the V4 countries- Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia- will be able to introduce themselves to investors and large business partners.
The main purpose of the Startup Campus V4 Global Tour program is to introduce Central and Eastern European startups to international markets. The tour across 10 cities and venues aims to promote this region, with special focus on the V4 countries.
“The Startup Campus V4 Global Tour is a gateway for the V4 region’s innovations and startup entrepreneurs. This event series gives startups the opportunity to access 10 international startup centers where they can introduce their ideas at independent V4-centric side events within the framework of the larger technology events. This initiative aims to make the V4 region more discoverable to investors, large corporations and professional partners,” said Zsolt Kovács, Managing Director of Enterprise Hungary.
8 to 10 early-stage V4 startup teams that have prototypes and have received investments or are already on the market will be able to join these international startup events. The tour consists of conferences, exhibitions and events worldwide, complemented by V4-centric sub or satellite events. The main purpose of these events is to connect startups with important investors and to create a suitable startup environment with various interactive workshops, conferences and round table discussions.
Baybars Altuntas the head organizer of the WBAF World Business Angels Forum, the first stop of the global tour, added: ‘’The World Business Angels Investment Forum is proud to announce the first stop on the roadshow of Startup Campus V4 is WBAF World Congress 2018 in Istanbul, on 19th of February 2018.
