During September 25th-26th, the 12th edition of the series of Business Days events will be held in Cluj, aiming, as indicated in their motto, at providing “inspiration, experience and opportunities for the people who want to generate value in Romania”.
Cluj Business Days (check out the website), the third event in a series of four planned for this year, will be hosted by Grand Hotel Italia.
The business community from Cluj (that includes tech business community) and from the whole central area of the country will have the opportunity to connect to the latest concerns and solutions related to business success, together with 60 top speakers of our country (entrepreneurs, managers of leading companies, investors, experts in various fields). The discussions, grouped under the general theme “Successful Entrepreneurship and Management”, will be occasioned by the 16 workshops, 4 conferences, 4 round tables and 3 business networking sessions during the two-day event.
“At the Cluj Napoca edition, our concern to support the development of start-ups in Romania takes new values. We have created new opportunities in order to help the entrepreneurs who are at the beginning of the road. The actions conceived in this respect are focused on three directions: testing the business idea, product or service, taking advantage of the presence and feedback of the audience, of 20 minutes meetings with investors and mentors attending the event and the business promotion through 3 minutes presentations in front of participating entrepreneurs and managers, “says Laszlo Pacso, the project coordinator.
Having a unique architecture in Romania, the Business Days events offer to the participants the possibility to assimilate information on three levels, with a view to have a triple gain: inspiration, ideas and potential business partners:
* Conferences – which are designed to charge with positive energy the attendees and give them ideas, through analyses of trends and development opportunities;
* Workshops – which are designed to develop skills through exchange of experiences and interactivity. The focus is placed on the practical component, case studies and question and answer sessions, in which participants can present their problems in order to find ideas, solutions and even resources to solve them;
* Formal business networking sessions – which are designed to generate business opportunities and identify potential partners or collaborators. Setting meetings at the event is supported by mobile application meet me, used by the participants interested to make matchmaking on site. The meet me application developed by the organizers allows the participants database finding, filtering and sorting, based on 4 criteria: activity field, position, company and name.
