Apply to our Mentoring Program!

On December 18th Design Terminal is opening the application to its spring Mentoring Program. The best startups with social impact focus can undergo a 3-month long business development. The teams can work together with corporations such as MOL and BlackRock Hungary.

Design Terminal announced its Mentoring Program again, successful since 2014. The organization is looking for candidates who aim to provide prosperity for their community. In 2017, ⅓ of the applications came from abroad. The innovative businesses of twelve countries - for example England, Portugal, India and Chile - found the Mentoring Program the most promising; its goal is to incubate early-stage startups. During the 3 months, the teams can perfect their business model and marketing communications but they work on their organizational and legal backgrounds as well.

One of the strengths of the program is its mentorpool consisting of local and international professionals including Gergely Hodicska from IMB Budapest Lab, Zoltán Várdy, media expert and Zsófia Pulay, innovation guru at Deutsche Bank. Besides the professional help, Design Terminal emphasizes the importance of integrating the startups to the ecosystem - the Design Terminal Card and the team building events both guarantee that the teams adapt easily to their new environment.

Application is open on our website until February 4th, 2018.
