V4 Startup Presentation Silicon Valley

Silicon Valley is the hot seat of startups and innovation, but global connection is powering the future – and the startup markets of the Visegrad region (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia) are currently blossoming, with thousands of new companies established and millions of venture capital invested. Together with We4Startups, Silicon Valley Forum presented the “V4 Startup Presentation Silicon Valley”.

The event featured lots of great networking and pitches from Central Europe’s top twelve up-and-coming startups and entrepreneurs, and that concluded a three-day tour of Silicon Valley’s coolest companies and accelerators.
