Risky Business is an early stage accelerator fund supported by 30+ of the most prominent and forward thinking business people in Transylvania, funding startups with up to €100k, plus acceleration support.
Risky Business is the first pre-seed investment fund in Romania. Located in Cluj-Napoca, in the heart of Transylvania, we invest in relentless teams with bold ideas.
We fund startups with up to €100k in financing plus acceleration support, including strong support on product, development, strategy, go-to-market, pitching, and more. Our founding team has strong experience in entrepreneurship, building both global and regional products for different markets. We have helped startups go from idea to funding, scaling, and exit. We also support teams with coworking space, regular networking events with investors and mentors, and connections to mentors and investors abroad.
To select the companies in which it will invest, Risky Business has launched an acceleration program hosted by Cluj Business Center. The program will culminate with a Demo Day at Techsylvania, one of the most important tech conferences in Romania.
