    V4 Startup Force in numbers 

    We launched the program in 2018 and since then we had 100+ startups of which,




    grew their business



    got an investment


    Any startup with a B2B (business to business) solution (above seed stage) registered in any V4 country (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland or Slovakia) with at least one founder having citizenship in the aforementioned countries.

    The entire program is free. What’s more, the 4 teams selected for the Startup Force program will receive a scholarship.

    We expect full dedication from two members of your startup (including a founder/CEO). The bootcamp is an intensive, 3-day event so that we can ensure that we select the most dedicated teams. While the bootcamp requires full-time dedication, the Startup Force program is 3-week-long and planned in a way that you have time to work a little as well. Plus, we’ll recommend who should attend a given workshop from your team.

    The whole programme will be in English.

    We are happy to help out with any questions! Just drop us a message at
