Startup Campus shows up in Berlin
After visiting seven Hungarian university towns and London, the roadshow of the Startup Campus launched with the support of the NRDI Office was finished in Berlin. In his opening presentation at the event, József Pálinkás, President of the NRDI Office highlighted the development achievements of the domestic innovation ecosystem and also told about the concept of the Campus Budapest multifunctional community centre to be launched at the Millenáris area, Budapest.

As the patron of the Startup Campus programme, József Pálinkás who also joined in the round-table discussion at the event, said: in the case of the refundable type of new sources i.e. venture capital programmes too, it is vital to ensure that funding goes to value-creating and competitive projects with real perspectives. He mentioned, as another milestone in the development of the innovation ecosystem, the Startup Campus Budapest project to be implemented in two buildings of the Millenáris area, which will definitely provide further inspiration to the innovative ideas of various generations, with its versatile training and business development services, co-working and event facilities.

Reaching beyond the country borders, the Startup Campus programme aims to foster innovative ideas shooting up at universities, providing young innovators and Hungarian or CEE startups with professional mentorship to help them enter the global markets. This series of events combined with startup competitions revealed 250 business projects of more than two thousand young talents in the last two years, and allowed 50 innovative businesses this year to present themselves. And what is more: a close cooperation and a collective thinking has been starting to evolve between local incubators, universities, municipalities and local domestic enterprises for an advanced innovation ecosystem. Both the organisers and the professional jury encountered quite a few ideas at each event which can be worth considering for the venture capital programmes (incubation, seed, growth) run by the Hiventures Fund Management company.
