What is your first association when someone mentions Romania? Perhaps Transylvania and its most famous tenant, Dracula? Or the communist leader Nicolae Ceauşescu that ran the controversial regime? Welcome to the tech startup world where Transylvania turns into Techsylvania and the hard history becomes a pretty promising present and even brighter future. We present you Romania’s growing tech landscape.
Remember the MVP Academy organized by Romanian How to Web? It is a pre-acceleration program for CEE early stage tech startups and it ended on Tuesday with a Demo Day. The finalists worked hard on their products for the last two months and pitched their products last night in front of the audience. In the same time, they have already started discussions for raising follow-up funding or being admitted into a European acceleration program.
How to Web recently launched its preacceleration program for CEE early stage tech startups, the MVP Academy, and it has just announced the 15 finalists who will form the first cohort in the program. The teams start their training on June 2nd and will work together with mentors and experienced professionals until July 22nd in order to develop their products and learn how to take advantage of the opportunities available on the global market.
Central and Eastern European startups often have great technical talent, but also lack the necessary business knowledge to transform their ideas into commercially successful products. How to Web is therefore launching MVP Academy, a pre-acceleration program for Central and Eastern European startups, aimed at honing the business skills of new tech companies. Teams working on innovative tech products and solutions can apply for the program by 17 May.
