I am passionate about


I have been a main organizer and one of the founders of the Hungary centered Central European Startup Awards ( ) where our mission was to create an award giving show without a conference and booths and the "money making machine" solely to bring together the most important people in startups in the region and let them meet and celebrate the startup community and each other. We have been busy to involve all 8+ countries that are involved in the CEE region to have as big of an impact as we can have. For the first event in 2014 we have received over a 1000 application in 6 categories and since these number just grew. As a rule we set that each year the conference have to be organized in a different country. The organization have grown from one conference to multiple events across the globe Nordic, India, Asia - awards. I am also a member of an organization called Global Shapers (founded by the World Economic Forum) where people with exceptional background got the opportunity to work together and create a localized impact in their community. As a member of the Budapest Hub our focus on constant education and bringing the gender gap to be seen and talked about within millenials and younger.
