ValDeal Innovation Zrt.

ValDeal Innovation was founded in 2006 to bridge the gap between science and business in Hungary by providing complex business incubation and acceleration services, and thus to become a prominent player in the Hungarian innovation market. ValDeal is creating and promoting an economic and corporate culture that enables the recognition and value creation of Hungarian intellectual property in both international and domestic markets. It was founded by the two companies, Budarsi ISC Kft. and Danubia IP Kft., together with private individuals having considerable experience in university technology transfer as well as provision of innovation services to micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises. They have received funding from private investors as well as the Hungarian government and have received grants from the European Union to support their initiatives. In the past two years, ValDeal has screened 600 projects and based on a multi-step screening process selected 60 for commercialization, and set up a Central European Ventures, a joint venture of ValDeal and Detroit Tech Town to commercialize European Innovations on the US market.
