Welcome to

V4

with support from

Join the Largest Startup Simulation in the Visegrad Group!

Econverse V4 is an international competition where teens will be working in cross-cultural teams to develop their own startup ideas, first during the local eliminations, and then during the Grand Finale.

By assembling top talents from the V4 countries, Econverse stands poised to play a pivotal role in entrepreneurial education and as a bridge between the most ambitious teens.

You don’t need to know anybody, or even have a business idea. Simply apply and learn everything in the process, so we are accessible for all – regardless of skill level and background.
After the recruitment process, teens join a brand-new team, meeting like-minded peers and experienced mentors. They stick with the team until the Pitch Contest, where, in front of a Jury made up of business stars, they compete for scholarships, internships, and partnerships with startups and corporations. We stress-tested our formula in Poland, and hope to replicate it in the entire V4. The main difference is that the competition will be held in English and that teens will be able to apply to any city of choice (Warsaw, Budapest, Bratislava, or Prague), fostering the international collaboration.
