First Monday with Vit Horky
Czech Founders
8th of April, 2024 @CREATE26
At Startup Hungary, we maintain a strong connection with Czech Founders and other regional organizations, consulting regularly on community-building best practices. Recognizing the need for a more interconnected CEE ecosystem, we found it compelling to offer a Czech & CEE perspective to the Hungarian community.
