Rockwood Networks presents a range of their new deep tech products for the first time to the public at Startup Night in Budapest

Rockwood Networks, an interdisciplinary management consulting business and member of the Irish Hungarian Business Association, will be exhibiting a range of their new deep tech products for the first time to the public at this year’s Startup Night event held in Budapest.

The company develops products based on ground-breaking new technology, commonly termed as deep tech. Rockwood has built up great expertise with so-called digital twins (i.e. digital replicas) for business processes and workflows, which generate operational and cost efficiencies for businesses in the fields of energy efficiency and electromobility.

Rockwood Networks was founded in Ireland in 2014 by Hungarian entrepreneur Gergely Lakatos. The company currently operates with a pool of 30 highly-skilled engineers based in Ireland, Spain and Hungary.

The Startup Night event, at its 5th edition this year, focuses on providing a platform where actors of the Budapest and international startup ecosystem can meet, and present themselves to the public and to potential investors and partners.

The event will be accompanied by the exhibition of 100 startups and more than 20 national and international cooperating partners such as IBM, Tungsram and Gránit Bank.

Gergely Lakatos, who is also the CEO of Rockwood Networks said, “I look forward to the Startup Night in Budapest. I trust we will meet bright companies with whom we can develop mutually beneficial business. We will showcase a range of our new deep tech products for the first time to the public and I hope that these products will capture the imagination and interest of the participants.”

The IHBA wishes Rockwood Networks and its team a very successful event, with many new contacts and follow ups. Do pay them a visit if you are in Budapest on the 28th November 2019.
