Bridge Budapest Fellowship - Call for Fellows

Bridge Budapest offers a 6-month-long paid fellowship program for Hungarian talents (graduate, post-graduate, recently graduated university students) to gain practical experience and inspiration from the most innovative, promising startups founded in Hungary. During the program fellows can grow professionally and experience startup culture and environment. Bridge Budapest Fellows will turn what they have learnt at school into practical work experience and create real value by working on tasks which have high business impact.


Every day people create and develop ideas, but behind every idea there is always an individual, and usually also a company. Bridge Budapest offers you a chance to discover the inner workings of some of the most impressive globally oriented companies in Budapest.


The main goal of the fellowship is to create a meeting point among  ambitious young talent and the most promising startups founded in Hungary. Based on the feedback of the former fellows of Bridge Budapest, it was discovered that it is important for them to prove their competence at a growing company with even bigger impact. Often it is the only way for them to experience  the value that they have learnt in school.


Ten promising, Hungarian related startups are involved in the fellowship program which will take ten ambitious young talents into their companies starting in October for a six months long fellowship program. Usually most of the participants  come from Marketing, Sales, Computer Science and Design, but Bridge Budapest awaits for participants from every background. It has already happened that a chemical engineer proved to be the best to solve a marketing task, furthermore, there was one time when a self-educated designer, who is originally a special needs teacher did the most convincing designer job. The applicants will choose between the high business impact tasks.


Bridge Budapest offers the opportunity to the ten most convincing applicants. It doesn't matter what have you learnt or done before, you can choose the high business impact task of the startups that you like to most.
