About the Ecosystem

In recent years cities like London and Berlin have been the destinations of choice for European entrepreneurs looking to make their mark on the global stage. Now they are being nudged aside by Budapest, the capital city of Hungary, home to a growing number of business accelerators and a wealth of funding sources. The result is a vibrant startup hub with huge appeal for tech entrepreneurs.

The easy access to key skills is the main factor that gives Budapest the edge over European cities. The country has traditionally been excellent in the fields of mathematics, engineering, technology and science and constantly produces top talent in the field of technology. It has a young, exceptionally educated, motivated, technically knowledgeable and highly skilled workforce who are eager to grow.

Nowadays Budapest is a thriving tech startup hub, with a strategic location in central Europe, a wide range of educational institutes, a large pool of highly skilled developers and an upward trend in investments. Institutions and corporates like HEPA, Startup Campus, Hiventures, EIT, Get in the Ring, HIPA, Tunsgram offer to startups and scaleups a wide range of services including training, incubation, prototyping, international market entry and investment. Startup Campus programs are designed to guide startups who are ready to scale up on an international level; they connect startups and investors, helping mature businesses to enter foreign markets in a smooth way.
