The startup engine of Eastern Slovakia

Based in Košice we help people start from nothing, grow organically and build sustainable innovations. No investments, no grants, just hardcore startups.

Startup - an individual or a team of entrepreneurs that effectively seek, develop and validate a business model that is repeatable and scalable.

Friends, Family & Fools meetups

In their beginnings startups often have only other startups to learn from and get help with validation and bootstrapping. We organize activities to make this collaboration happen.

About meetups

Coworking & founders' hub

We gather up in a family house near the centre of Košice. There are 3 floors with 26 work desks, awesome kitchen, living room, underground fablab and a large barbeque yard.

Pre-seed startup incubator

For Košice’s most promising teams we have created a window of time and space where they can fully commit to their startups. It’s the best environment to launch often and fail fast.

About incubator

A conference for
Košice’s pioneers

To inspire the community our pioneers need a big spotlight. Together with 150 visitors, 6 new startups and 10 guest speakers we launched  our first startup conference to do just that.
