The Spot is an initiative of start-up enthusiasts from Slovakia. We have built a space for all creative and innovative people with an entrepreneurial spirit. They can cooperate, get educated, help each other and get inspired. We help them start their businesses and constantly encourage them to higher goals.
Our members enjoy a constant stream of workshops, mentorship sessions and opportunity to meet experts in fields like tech, marketing, presentation skills or sales.
We believe that people can improve themselves and their work on a daily basis. In this respect we want our presentations, workshops and other events to be inspirational, educational and sometimes even mind-changing.
Since 2015 we run an Acceleration program Booster as part of CEEDtech accelerator consortium.
Furthermore we act as the start-up community integrator in various meetups, afterwork sessions in order for founders and other members of the community to work together. Come in and become one of us!
We participate on the formation of the state innovation policy, we joined SAPIE - Slovak Association for Internet Economy. We develop new ways to support startups through crossborder cooperation, we are part of Startup Federation to offer worldwide resources to our members.
