Budapest’s Design Terminal runs a four-month business development program for teams that are addressing social good, social welfare in a sustainable and scalable way in the sectors such as healthcare, work and learning, mobility, energy and urbanism. Their program helps prepare the most innovative Hungarian businesses for international market entry. The business development process comprises the improvement of participating projects in terms of business model, legal background, organizational development and marketing communications. At the same time, mentored teams prepare to accept their first round of investment, ensuring international expansion.
The mentoring program is special even when compared to a broad range of its European counterparts. During the four months spent together, the participating businesses have ample opportunity to learn from each other. Design Terminal’s international mentor network represents the program’s other outstanding advantage: in the course of four months, one hundred and fifty renowned experts – from Silicon Valley through Berlin all the way to Budapest – will be adding their know-how to the business development process. In addition, Design Terminal, in partnership with the Hungarian National Trading House, ensures that each participating team gets the chance to attend at least one leading international trade fair or exhibition.
On the 25th of January 2017, Design Terminal held its semester-closing ceremony and introduced the most exciting business ideas and supported undertakings. Wednesday, 8+1 “startups” introduced themselves on the well-known Design Terminal’s Demo Day.
