Innovation Labs Romania

Innovation Labs is a university-anchored technology-based accelerator program, running its 9th edition this year. Present in 11 of the Romanian top universities (Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Iași, Sibiu, and Timișoara), the program has national coverage, and it offers free-of-charge mentorship to young early-stage start-up teams that engage in a journey from creative idea to user-focused prototype and product. The problem we solve, in broad terms, is the low percentage of young tech entrepreneurs in the Romanian start-up ecosystem. Our solution is a novel grassroots approach: we recruit students with good technical skills and train them in teamwork, product development and pitching to investors. Tens of our alumni teams currently operate as successful businesses in Romania and internationally.

As an adult, I have been looking to connect music, new technology and design, trying to channel people's thinking into climate issues.
