Inventures.eu is starting an interesting series about startups in Romania, a series that shows promise, especially since at least 2 articles already mentioned MavenHut :D
Mircea Goia, from Romanian Startups, talks a little bit about, obviously, startups in Romania here.
As of today, RomanianStartups.com amasses 139 startups, 286 founders, 24 events and 2 accelerators/incubators. It’s a far cry from about 15-20 startups, which I managed to find in 2007 and not all of the actual startups in Romania are in this newly built database.
Bogdan Iordache, the founder of How To Web, talks about “riding a speeding bullet” when it comes to the changes in the startups ecosystem in Romania in the last 4-5 years.
As the number of stakeholders of the new innovation economy grows, more communities emerge. TechHub Bucharest, Startup Hub Timisoara, Cluj Hub and many others provide not only resident and hot desks, but also a reason for the local communities to meet, interact and exchange knowledge, and putting entrepreneurs, investors, R&D centers, product companies, developers and product experts together.
And while this ecosystem matures, growth is happening exponentially. This is just the begining of a great ride, fast as a speeding bullet.
Follow inventures.eu for the rest of the articles :)
