Early stage investing in Romania today:

  • In Romania, business angel activities are not well-defined
  • Early-stage investing is at a quite young stage, but there is a lot of interest in starups, especially in tech
  • There is a long tradition of education in technology, engineering, it...
  • Increasing number of young entrepreuneurs, and people with experience trying out entrepreneurship at least part-time and setting up new ideas.

My goals in Romania
