Our Team for Hungary
Meet Cintia, our National Lead for Hungary!
What is your background?
I have been involved in EIT Climate-KIC programmes since 2018, when I started working for PANNON Pro Innovations, the main delivery partner of EIT Climate-KIC Hungary. I have background in Business Information Technology and Business Development, I gained great experience at several multinational companies. At PANNON Pro I am working as a project manager of cleantech entrepreneurship and educational programmes.
Why did you become a country lead?
Because it inspires and brings together cleantech entrepreneurs from all over the world. It is great to be part of this network where we support participants to transform their cleantech ideas into successful businesses.
Why do you think this competition is so important?
ClimateLaunchpad is the world’s largest green business ideas competition. It is important because it globally boosts and supports cleantech ideas which could significantly help to tackle climate change.
How does your organisation support cleantech start-ups?
We also run the EIT Climate-KIC Accelerator entrepreneurship programme, organise the Journey and Skills for Future educational programmes. Since 2014 – when PANNON Pro became part of the EIT Climate-KIC community – we have been incubated +150 startups and €750k grant was distributed among the best ones.
