„Failure is an option here. If things are not failing, you are not innovating enough.”

Elon Musk, car and space ship manufacturer (2005)




Together with Zsolt Weiszbart angel investor and member of Quantum Leap we incubated 5 startups, 2 of them succeeded, the other 3 unfortunately defaulted. Succesful startups: Distinction (acquisition by Skyscanner, 2014) and Nowtech (investment by OTP DayOne, 2014). Unsuccesful investments: Webee, Nightkick and Laookon (venture capital investment by BigGeorge’s Venture Funds, 2013). Since 2012 Valley Connect held several workshops, community events and trainings with the participation of over 300 people.
