12 Hungarian startups build relationships in the USA

Twelve Hungarian startups were given the opportunity to gain first-hand experience, establish direct contacts, and learn about the investment market in the United States.

The program was jointly organized by the INPUT Program and the Express Innovation Agency.

The INPUT Program provides free services to interested parties to contribute to the development of the Hungarian ICT startup ecosystem through its expert colleagues and wide network of national and international contacts. 

The Express Innovation Agency, the innovation services subsidiary of the National Research, Development and Innovation Office, is responsible for actively supporting the innovation ecosystem from upstream to the gateway to the international market.

The two-week study tour from January 3 to January 14, 2022, followed a two-round selection process and several consulting and training sessions, allowing the lucky startups to gain valuable knowledge at CES, one of the world’s most important technology shows, and then in Silicon Valley.

During the very intensive program, the startups were able to participate in meetings, mentoring sessions and pitch events. They also visited several accelerators and innovation ecosystem players where they were able to gain an even closer insight into the conditions for success in the U.S. market, as well as learn about startups, taxation issues and how to attract investors.
