Startup Underground (SUU) is an annual gathering of startups, leaders, innovators, venture capitalists, journalists, bloggers – members of the Hungarian entrepreneurial ecosystem. It is an intensive, one-day long program featuring a startup competition, several panel discussions, and workshops. This year it will take place at Corvinus University of Budapest and it starts on Thursday, April 18!
Since the establishment in 2008, the team has been working on spreading entrepreneurship, and the values underlying the entrepreneurial mindset. Their aim is to help advance the dialog and the flow of ideas within the members of the CEE region, and to establish an entrepreneurial ecosystem at the heart of Europe.
