Application for Design Terminal mentoring program closes


The application period for Design Terminalʼs spring 2019 startup mentoring program ended on February 18, attracting applicants from countries as diverse as the U.S., Denmark, Sweden, and Nigeria, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.

Applicants offer innovative solutions in a great variety of areas, ranging from education to healthcare.

Design Terminal received a grand total of 174 applications from 30 countries around the globe. The most innovative applying startups, which are scaleable and profit-oriented, may take part in the three-month program starting April 8.

During the program, the teams could work with Design Terminalʼs corporate partners, with a possibility of their solutions integrating into the everyday operations of these partners. One example of such a successful collaboration is Aeriu from Hungary, with its drone solutions speeding up IKEAʼs inventory processes.

About 15-20 teams of the 174 will receive an invitation to a "powercamp" where they will compete with each other, proving that they are the best by completing tasks with the assistance of Design Terminalʼs mentors.

Meanwhile, Design Terminal is also conducting an innovation competition entitled "Gazdálkodj okosan! - NAK Agrotech Hackathon," in cooperation with the Hungarian Chamber of Agriculture. The 24-hour competition will take place March 22-23.

The organizers are awaiting applications from startups, university and college students, and career entrants who want to light up the operations of the domestic agricultural sector, even if not experts in the field. The participants will need to present suggestions for improving the efficiency of agriculture.
