Fpt Slovakia knows how to support young talents

Starting this initiative as RWE IT Slovakia, Fpt Slovakia continues to support young talents in their endeavor to stun the world.


Every year Fpt Slovakia creates space where for one week chosen students and graduates (and last year even teachers) are invited to join in creative teams and work together on new startups. They are undergoing the whole lifecycle from creating a new idea, thru business model and solution development to validation and presentation of the ideas. This eventful week is also enriched by morning warm-up meetings with IT celebrities and it is called Fpt Slovakia Summer School.

As one of the last seasons products new social media app was created which will soon be field tested. Not only this, but such initiatives lead to new cooperation, for example with the Technical University of Košice, and also open new opportunities for young talent to get discovered and supported.

Unfortunately, offering a week of Summer School apparently is not enough for this company. Now they are also claiming our Startup Weekend and they are ready to bring the best practices to out event. You can meet them at the venue and get to know the company as well as their new awareness campaign “Play IT a Presaď sa aj Ty” in case you didn´t hear about it (which I deeply doubt). So meet Jozef (Dodan) Vojtko as one of our judges or win the amazing Vouchers for consultation services with IT developers and project managers.
