Start-up Your Idea

It is our bespoke three-day intensive program for wannabe entrepreneurs who intend to advance from idea to active business. It is the perfect occasion for 15 entrepreneurs that we select to learn about the challenges of being their own boss, how to write a successful business plan and pitch an idea to get funding to venture capitalists and many more.

The program has 3 components:

  • 2 training sessions and workshops per year
  • recurring meetings with the all the participants
  • a mentoring process to help young entrepreneurs to implement their start-up idea.

The pilot event took place in July 2011 in Bran, Romania and gathered 13 wannabe entrepreneurs and 8 speakers. In August that year, a follow-up event was held at the American Chamber of Commerce in Bucharest having as speakers three experts from the Romanian Commercial Bank.

Due to its success, this wonderful project continued and we are glad to have contributed to the launch of several businesses: Mercy Charity Boutique, Business Coaching and Vira Association.

Among our long-term speakers & mentors are: Peter Barta (the Post- Privatization Foundation), Adrian Amariei ( CEO Axonite), Roxana Damaschin Tescu ( NESsT), Corneliu Botnariuc (Managing Partner – Edge Business Advisors) and Denes Lenard (Webfoo Co-Founder).

The project is implement on a yearly basis, thus stay tuned. For further information write an e-mail here.
