Today, the Central European states comprising the Visegrád Group, or V4 (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia), are emerging from a sustained period of significant regional economic expansion. Yet, although the V4 has prospered, regional economic growth has somewhat stagnated, in part due to fettered innovation. Across the V4, internationally-minded startups and entrepreneurs looking to achieve greater scale for their business models are increasingly struggling to cross into new markets and expand within their home markets, failing to realize significant investments in new, innovative and possibly disruptive technologies. 

In part, this is because V4 governments have not adopted or adapted laws and regulations which encourage startups and entrepreneurs to innovate, by providing greater clarity as to a wide array of concerns, including corporate governance, technological changes, intellectual property, and venture capital.  


Our next issue will focus on the V4, to understand how government regulations directly and indirectly impact startups and entrepreneurs with a collaborative view of renewing theoretical questions about how governments may respond to foster greater innovation.
