Our web portal is the first official on-line hub for start-ups in the Czech Republic. It was launched as a partnership project of the Investment and Business Development Agency CzechInvest in cooperation with IBM Czech Republic, Czech ICT Alliance, Association of small and medium-sized Enterprises and Crafts of the Czech Republic and Rockaway Capital.
Our portal brings together all important information from the start-up world. Our main aim is to provide basic information about the Czech start-up scene and therefore to enhance orientation of everyone interested in the Czech start-ups. On the website, you can find relavant information about existing governmental and private support programs, but also information about providers that can help you take your business to the next level via mentoring, investments or networking.
Moreover, you can take a look at our extensive event calendar where you will be able to find all attractive events taking place in the Czech Republic and selected interesting international events.
As a final note, we also hope that the stories we bring to you through our portal can serve as a motivation to start your own business.
