Polish, Czech, Slovakian and Hungarian startups can already apply for our regional business development program. This year, the five-day Bootcamp will already give teams professional knowledge and business network.
You can now apply to the spring semester of our V4 Startup Force program. Launched a couple of years ago as the first startup scholarship in the V4 region, Polish, Czech, Slovakian and Hungarian start-ups can prove in this program that they are the best of their nation.
Celebrating its 30th anniversary, the V4 collaboration puts a special emphasis on the current semester. The partners of Design Terminal are the Czech DEX-IC, the Polish ReaktorX Warsaw and the Slovakian CAMPUS again this year. The scholarship program is implemented with the support of the International Visegrad Fund (IVF). We aim to drive the regional, local economies in the V4 countries.
Following the application, 20 companies from the four countries will be selected and will have the opportunity to enter the first V4 Bootcamp. During the five days, even those who do not end up in the final selection will be given professional knowledge and a wide network of contacts at the workshops and community events.
During the seventeen-day online acceleration, the top four teams, one startup from each country, will virtually tour the Visegrad region: they will visit Budapest, Bratislava, Prague and Warsaw during the two weeks. The online format provides them with more opportunities to get to know the key players and investors of four economically strong countries through business meetings. Teams can participate in lectures, workshops, community building events, develop their products with the help of international mentors, meet inspiring performers, successful startups in the region, local accelerators and potential clients. This year, we will also connect teams with Alumni startups.
