StartUpDay 2018, held on October 5th, 2018, has been a sounding success, as well as in the eyes of participating project owners but also by the investors. Our initiative brought 4 investors from Carl Wolff Gesellschaft, the Transilvanian Business Club in Germany and some Angel Investors from the US and Romania in the audience. After having been accepted by the jury, composed by Mr. Ludger Thol – President DWNT, Mrs. Sorana Cernea – Head of TPA Romania in Cluj-Napoca, Dr. Ciprian Paun – PCLAW Office and Mr. Alexander Varvaressos – Managing Partner Intertrust Consulting, 10 projects teams were chosen to present and about 25 team members made up the biggest part of the audience. The remaining participants have been DWNT-Members and other guests by invitation.
The first part saw same forewords of Mr. Ludger Thol, President of DWNT, Ania Pascalau, Marketing Manager at CREIC – Centrul Regional de Excelență pentru Industrii Creative, Mr. Wilhelm Beer, representative of Carl Wolff Gesellschaft and Mr. Alexander Varvaressos, Managing Partner Intertrust Consulting, followed by projects from the area of language schools, human resources and mentoring such as
- Gutenberg Language School
- Deutsch mit Spass
After the coffee-break we continued with tourism, event management, communication, social media marketing and recycling
- Travel Scribus
- Disruptive Travel App
- Social Soldiers
At the end we experienced a presentation of an innovative device by Mr. Bjoern Rittershausen, measuring the air quality in rooms making real time results available through an mobile app.
Shortly afterwards the group gathered at the Inn brewery Fabrica de Bere in Cluj-Napoca to continue with the networking part, where investors and project participants could huddle together, exchange contacts and make first discussions in a relaxed atmosphere.
Together with the representatives of Carl Wolff Gesellschaft the decision has been taken right on the spot to organize a second edition of DWNT StartUpTag in autumn 2019.
