The BudapestHUB working group has set a target to make Budapest the region's startup capital by the end of this decade; the State’s responsibility is to act as a catalyst and clear all obstacles along the way.

According to this Working Group, Budapest needs to build-up a critical mass of start-ups, find its comparative advantages and rely on local characteristics in order to become the Start-Up Hub of Central and Eastern Europe.

The English version of the credo prepared by the working group can be downloaded from here: Budapest Runway - The Startup Credo PDF (1 125 KB)
