FutureNow was founded & developed by two leaders in the Central European innovation ecosystem – HubHub & CIVITTA Slovakia.

History of FTRNW

Starting with the Startup Awards competition in Slovakia 10 years ago, our project has evolved into something bigger – actually we became one of the largest competitions in CEE. Introducing FTRNW was a revolution and the event drew the attention of many entrepreneurs and companies from the whole world to Bratislava, where this unique event takes place. FTRNW gathers together influential tech visionaries, mentors, speakers, investors with starting businesses to let them connect with each other and create impactful collaborations

across and beyond the region. Last year FTRNW introduced a new digital program to adapt to the challenging times this pandemic has posed. The bootcamp went fully online and we launched a wide range of benefits for selected finalists instead of choosing a winner. The finalists were then integrated within our HubHub community and enjoyed a wider program of activities delivered by our partners in the following months.

HubHub is a state
of mind

At HubHub, like-minded talent and a culture of opportunity collide – creating the perfect environment for extraordinary things to happen. It’s a meeting of minds, a vibrant collective of energetic and dynamic people, each dedicated to the shared success of our thriving network and driving towards the one same goal – to keep on growing. HubHub infuses its environments with a certain alchemy for success. Everything we do is specifically designed to create and maximise opportunities between our people and the wider ecosystem, and for our educational programmes to develop and grow talent.
