Angel BusinessGellér-Varga Zsuzsanna - 56'
Angel Business is a documentary about the financial and personal challenges of becoming one of the first angel investors during the birth of Hungary's startup era. Tony returned home to Hungary after burning out as a derivative trader for 15 years in Western Europe. As a self-taught “business angel” - using his own savings - he wants to make a difference helping new talent and investing in startups. In the meantime, he tries to find new ways to communicate with his 7 year-old daughter who may never be able to speak due to a rare brain disorder...
The film follows one of Tony’s investments, iLandGuide, a mobile app that acts as a tour guide for holiday islands. Does his investment pay off? Was it worth risking his family's stable financial future? Through Tony’s story we get a glimpse of the startup world in Hungary - a tiny country full of innovation and technical expertise - as well as insight into the personal challenges and dilemmas of being a unique kind of modern businessman.
