ABOUT US

Virgo Ventures is a hungarian technology incubator founded by Virgo Systems & CEIS.

We are not investors, rather dedicated professional partners that provide significant field expertise, finance up to 250k EUR, extended international network, professional IT and business know-how.

Our goal is to give a real-life, professional, hands-on guidance in the early‐stage digital product and business development. Our added value comes from the 15+ years of successful business record, a team of 100+ IT and other experts and an approach that is based on mutual understanding and equal partnership.

“For us, smart money is the only trusted currency!”

WHAT WE FOCUS ON

We are looking for attractive business ideas and solutions in conceptual, prototype, or growth phase, that have significant international growth potential. Our main areas of interest are digital product development such as AI, Big Data & Analitics, Cybersecurity, Fintech, Edtech, Digital Media, Adtech, Creative Industries, Health & Wellness, Art-Tech, IT, Ecommerce, HR Tech, IoT or Business Operation solutions.

THE WAY WE WORK

The technological background of the Virgo Group and the number of successful digital companies / stories allow us to provide unique and high quality expertise in digital product development, software, hardware, IT, business and entrepreneurial skills for innovative businesses to realize their vision – and that is what sets us apart from other investors / incubators. In our new investment program, which starts on February 1, 2021, we will keep in mind the long-term strategic, financing and technological goals of the startups, as well as the professional assistance we can provide. During the implementation of our program, we plan to support 10-12 companies, we provide a minimum of HUF 5 million and a maximum of HUF 75 million in capital investment and subsidy for startups.
