investments. We are also tracking the economic proﬁle of these Hungarian startups,

Startups.hu was established in an effort to build an extensive database of Hungarian
startups, their economic performance, and the hard working entrepreneurs behind
them. We want the site to become the source of an informed overview of the startup
ecosystem in Hungary.
Our goal is to make the Hungarian startup ecosystem transparent and predictable,
thus more attractive for international venture capital.
