DIRECTOR, DESIGN TERMINAL
After serving in the public administration as deputy head of strategic communication for the Government of Hungary, Gergely Böszörményi-Nagy joined Design Terminal, the government agency responsible for design and innovation as strategic director, where he was subsequently promoted to general director in January, 2014. During his leadership, the company launched an extensive portfolio of early stage, non-equity incubation services for innovative enterprises, for which Design Terminal was awarded European Enterprise Promotion Awards by the European Commission in 2014, and was also named the “best start-up accelerator in Hungary” two years later.
In 2016, Gergely and his team was appointed to prepare the country’s official start-up strategy, the government’s legislative package to stimulate the innovation ecosystem by incentives for entrepreneurial education, business incubation and angel investment. Later in 2016, following a general restructuring in the Hungarian public administration, Design Terminal made a transition to the private sector, and continues its operations as an independent non-profit.
