Transylvania Demo Day

Concept

Transilvania Demo Day is a one-day yearly event with focus on start-up idea pitching. We provide a matchmaking framework with mentors and investors interested to partner up with the local tech innovation enthusiasts interested in the following domains: Internet of Things & SmartCity, digital and creative industries and tech products.

Approach

With this approach, Transilvania Demo Day is opening doors for the entrepreneurs, help them connect with a network of people who are interested in what they’re doing and give them insight into possible ways to improve their business or product. And, of course,  for the audience, it’s a great learning experience, plus a great way to spark new ideas!

RBL - Entrepreneurship Workshops

The power of business community
Romanian Business Leaders is is a community of more than 500 members animated by the same values: altruism, integrity and action applied in the business sector.

The RBL Workshops were first held in 2012 during the Romanian Business Leaders Summit as a solution to one of the problems uncovered by the EU statistic which state that the number of romanian entrepreneurs is less than the european average. The reason invoked by the majority was that they fear to start a business of their own because they lack knowledge and self-confidence. To address this issue, RBL developed this framework of workshops in order to promote the entrepreneurial spirit and competences among the business owners. The workshops are held every other Saturday, based on a 7 business themes curricula and they are adapted to the stage of the participant’s companies: Start-up or Scale-up.

The evening format of the workshops gather the entire community to share personal  business experiences on specific topics.
