— all you need
Hungary could be made
and globally successful
Spread stories of people
who met challenges
and pushed through
with a positive experience

achieving real things
Why is it necessary?
since 2008 the startup ecosystem is not growing so fast
same people, same stories everywhere - just a few new stories
the mainstream media and people feel this is a 'secret society'
we have mentality problems - most of the people feel:
"there is no reason to try, things are shitty anyway"
"blaming the past for what did not happen"
"people far too often who don’t dare to believe in themselves"
We know that optimism alone is not sufficient
to change the world.
But without it there is no improvement.
We all can be the voice that defies fatalism.
Stories we tell, matter.
BridgeBudapest can be an important part in inspiring a sense of optimism in Hungary.
A fully-financed fellowship program
offered to young people and journalists
to be able to gain knowledge and inspiration
from the biggest internet companies of the world
get an insight into the internal operations and the exciting world of Silicon Valley
“If three of us managed to do it, anyone can do it.” - says Péter Árvai
The fellowship also relies on world-class opportunities available in Hungary. LogMeln, Prezi and Ustream accepts foreign talents in their Budapest offices proving that it is not necessary to leave Hungary to find world-class business culture.
