Romanian entrepreneurship has come of age. In recent months, companies founded by Romanians worldwide, using Silicon Valley as a launchpad for their ventures, have achieved major acquisitions, partnerships and financing.
On 8th of May 2015 The Honorary Consulate of Romania from San Francisco and The Romanian-American Business Network RABN from Silicon Valley, USA organized a discussion with globally successful Romanian entrepreneurs.

The hosts of this event were Dana Beldiman – Honorary Consul General of Romania and George Roth – Honorary Consul of Romania and founder of Recognos.com. The hosts hope this kind of event will eventually become a regular one.
RomanianStartups.com was mentioned in the beginning by Dana Beldiman. Some statistics from the website was presented there and we understand that not the whole Romanian tech startups scene is on RomanianStartups.com, but we strive to bring as many as possible on-board.
You can help too, by making RomanianStartups.com more known (sharing, emailing, registering startups if you find they are not part of the database, let other founders know about the site). Thank you.
