Richard Végh, CEO, Budapest Stock Exchange:

“One of the key components in the strategy of the Budapest Stock Exchange is to become the most essential financing platform for competitive and successful Hungarian companies. The Program was launched with the objective to implement a comprehensive development program for the equity market and the stock exchange that contributes to the growth of the Hungarian economy in the long term and fosters additional improvement in the country’s competitiveness.

“I believe that all the seven companies in the presently launched group are Hungarian ventures that stand out in their respective fields and that all of them are innovative, open to novelties, and want to grow and develop. Via practice-oriented training, the Program aims to provide support in the development of ambitious and dynamic companies just like them. I’m proud of them and I can say one could not hope for better applicants. I wish them and also the representatives of the other non-resident participants the best of luck.”
