We want to create an inspiring environment for future generations to build businesses with the right support locally, in Gyor.
We are doing this:
Our goal is to put Győr on the map of European innovation!
We are looking for you if:
StartITup Győr was born in May 2017 with the event “Let’s create a startup life in Győr”. Our first event was welcome in the community, attracted some sponsors and a great number of young people joined which validated the need for such a platform. By joining forces, we could unlock the potential of local entrepreneurs and boost the creation of startups. After dozens of events since then, a massive community of around 700 people are backing our goals and part of the StartITup community.
This situation of Győr is rather particular. It is a university town in the middle of the Vienna-Budapest-Bratislava triangle, besides Gyor is one of the most important economic and industrial hubs of the country.
We face two challenges by building our ecosystem:
We believe that there is space for both high-value added employment and riskier entrepreneurship. We want to reach and elevate the entire ecosystem: startups, idea owners, academia, industry, non-profits and support organisations. Our goal is to encourage the local community to support & build new businesses as well as to engage with the local and regional industry to realize innovation programmes together.
Startup Wednesdays (Startup Szerda)
We organize a monthly meetup every first Wednesday of the month.
We pick a topic and bring together interesting speakers from different fields in the startup world.
We aim to bring a speaker outside the region, to invite female entrepreneurs and to showcase a local best practice.

Ideathon 1.0, 2.0 is an idea competition (hackathon) where anyone can participate whether they have or not an idea, can join a team and can work together on improving this idea into an MVP or prototype with experienced mentors.
TEDxGyor 2018, 2019 - TEDx is an inspirational series of thought-provoking talks to engage the audience in thinking outside the box. Speakers from all walks of life are invited to share their knowledge, expertise and wisdom with exciting side events.
Our team regularly organises training and workshops for the community in collaboration with the INPUT programme, the local chamber of commerce and the university.
We are proud to host the first local incubation programme of K&H Start it outside Budapest.
The Program aims to create and nurture internationally competitive Hungarian tech startups by facilitating the growth and transformation of the Hungarian startup ecosystem by encouraging entrepreneurs and helping them build sustainable ventures. The INPUT Program offers four core services (training, mentoring, business development and international market access) to give hands-on guidance and support for startups in validating their ideas, finding investment, developing their products and entering international markets.
This EU-funded project supports startup companies individually by mentoring, coaching, counselling and teams via workshops and organising company visits in the border region. The goal is to build a community of Hungarian and Austrian startup entrepreneurs.Follow US!

StartITup Győr is a bottom-up initiative to build a healthy entrepreneurial ecosystem by connecting it to the broader European innovation environment. In 2017, Krisztian Szabo started to gather the core team and together they launched StartITup Győr, a bottom-up initiative elevating the local startup and innovation ecosystem. The initiative grew organically with the enormous help of Tamas Tuske, a local community organiser and Diana Pati, a Győr university alumni who for time being lives and works in Belgium and channels best practices from other European ecosystems.
