There are so many recent success stories involving entrepreneurs, designers, innovators and inspiring personalities of Hungarian origin, however, these positive news mostly go unnoticed in the international press. This is how the idea emerged to create and offer a space exclusively dedicated to these new Hungarian ventures, their successful founders and inspiring ideas, and so this online magazine was born end of September 2012.

It takes a lot of courage to follow your heart, it requires hard work and perseverance to pursue an idea, to found a company and eventually it is also part of the game to go through tough times. Sometimes only small things make or break a new idea, a new venture. A lot of things have to fall into place to succeed and eventually it is also a question of luck: being in the right place at the right time. Featured stories on this site are inspiring, their success should be shared and cherished.

Featured brands, concepts, services and companies are handpicked by me and I do not take any compensation – neither financial nor material – for any of the articles. However, given the popularity of the site, qualified companies are invited to contact the author regarding potential cooperation opportunities. Should an article be sponsored, it will be clearly stated and categorized as such. For more information please visit the Cooperations page.

I hope you will enjoy cruising through this site. Please feel free to contact me via the contact form, if you have questions or would like to give a feedback. It would be lovely to hear from you.

Kind regards,

  1. I would believe all what i saw here makes a difference tomorrow – in the eye of a regular Hungarian person. Thank you so much for letting us know that so fabulous, sublime, high-art, tasteful creations are made by our Hungarian artists. If Louis de Soleil lived today, every one of these creators would work in Versailles. Fabulous, beautiful, amazing breathtaking – a big big bravo!!! Thank you Monika!
