Romania Visit

🇷🇴 My short visit to Romania last week was refreshing, meeting long-time friends and new ones, creating new opportunities & friendships.

💡 It was great meeting my dear friend Oana Craioveanu, co-founder of Impact Hub Bucharest and advisor to the Minister of Research, Innovation & Digitalization, Mr. Ciprian Teleman, to discuss ways of cooperation and promotion of the startups ecosystem. Later meeting Sergiu Popa, Executive Director of Spherik Accelerator, which I mentored in the past and hope to return to in the near future. Also met with a dear new friend Tova Ben Nun Cherbis, President of Complexul Educational Laude-Reut and her executive staff, to discuss integrating entrepreneurial program as well as ICT and cyber.🛡

🌟 In part of my visit I was accompanied by Jurgita Jaruševičienė, CEO of Tutoring Platform, an alumni of #TechHub under MITA – Mokslo, inovacijų ir technologijų agentūra. Jurgita presented MOKOSI receiving a supportive feedback and plans ahead.

📝 In between I was applying to receive my Romania passport😊

Romania remains one of my favorite countries and I look forward to my next visit.🛫

La revedere și ne revedem în curând😊

Empowering Women in Tech / 2020

💡 Femtech is the prime technological sector in which women entrepreneurs have an advantage since they are the end customers, they know the needs on a personal basis, and have probably experienced most of them on themselves. Hence, they are the perfect candidates to ideate and develop such products!
📈 The market potential of #Femtech is huge and growing quickly, same as interested parties – #women, #VC funds, #healthcare providers, #pharmaceutical companies, #insurers, and others.
💎2019 was the inflection point for Femtech, as the amount of money invested was the highest, reaching almost $800 million. The predictions are that Femtech will become the next big disruptor in the #global #healthcare #market and that it’s on the path of becoming a consolidated $50 billion industry (estimated for 2025 by Frost & Sullivan).

Business Summit Transilvania 2019

💡#BusinessSummitTransilvania offered a unique opportunity to feel the pulse of the Romanian #business and #startup ecosystem’s state of mind as well as its eagerness to accelerate. I sense capability, need, opportunity, #funding and above all motivated people are all in place.

⏳Politeness will not get you far, nor expecting someone else but yourselves to make it work.

✅You want it, You do it.

Thank you Bianca Tudor & Ciprian Faraon for inviting me, as well as to the supportive ELITE Business Women team and awesome audience.

Most of what we know comes from someone else’s knowledge and experience. To be sure its so, we must first try it ourselves. Iasi, Romania decision makers, opinion shapers and startups, it’s your time to decide how we take it forward.
