    In the V4 Startup Force program, we aimed to learn more about regional markets and engage with local industry players to understand the local structure in medical pedicure-podology, receive feedback on our current system (how it fits local needs), and explore potential partnerships.

    “ We are very happy because the feedback was excellent. We have initiated several negotiations in V4 countries and even started a pilot project in southern Slovakia.”

    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.

    The bootcamp will take approx. 2,5 days, including the pitching event. You'll get workshops, mentoring and we'll prepare you for your pitch -the these will come handy down the line even if you don't make it to the program. Attending the Bootcamp will be imporant because we'll monitor your activity and aim to get to know you better -these criteria and the pitch will determine if you make it to the Business Spring part.

    The Business Sprint will last a total of 6 weeks. During the first 4 weeks, we'll have workshops on Thursday and Friday mornings. These will delve deeper into business related issues, you'll explore and help overcome each other's obstacles and get on-one-one, tailored advice from experts. During this time, we will also organize meetings for you with relevant entities (e.g. corporates, clients, investors, etc.) to get you relevant feedback and even find your first clients from a new market.

    The last part will be a community and networking event in Budapest, where everyone travels in person (your costs are on us) and get further workshops, meetings but it's really about community. Your time will be worth it, we promise!

    The whole programme will be in English.

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