Romanian startups go global
According to Bogdan Savonea, fondator Rat Labs & The Pole Society, this is the perfect opportunity for Romania “to increase its visibility within international technology press. Startups and hubs will have the chance to talk with a TechCrunch Senior Editor, and, maybe, we will open the doors for future articles about Romania and local companies”.
If you think global start-up hubs, Romania is probably not the first country that springs to mind. But maybe it’s time to give this a second thought! In a 2014 series about world’s best start-up hubs, Virgin nominated Bucharest. The Romanian capital is the only city in Central & Eastern Europe to appear on this list along with New York, Berlin, Paris, London, Stockholm, Sydney, Singapore, Santiago and few more others.
They make a difference
This series of events with Jonathan Shieber is organized by Rat Labs, a local hub founded by three startups in Bucharest: The Beards, Mobuy and The Pole Society. In case you did not know, Rat Labs organises GROW workshops for entrepreneurs and communication specialists. They will not teach you all about social media, but once you finish their five courses, you will know the difference between a trivial campaign and a truly successful one. Hopefully, you’ll master some key techniques to create and manage your on own efficient campaign.
