Startup Europe Week in Cluj-Napoca

Impact Hub Cluj-Napoca together with Cluj Startups will organise a series of events, part of the Europe Startup Week.

Join us on the 8th and 9th of February!

What are the difficulties faced by local startups? What is the existing support system that can be accessed by start-ups? Where can you find it? We are analysing the advantages and disadvantages that we have.

But we are also analysing what are the opportunities and how much we use them in order to boost our businesses.

We are looking at global trends and debate around existing dilemmas and pitfalls that stop us grow. We are rediscovering the strong points of our local ecosystem; think and re-think possible solutions to push our ideas and products in the local and global markets.

Our events, that will take place during two days, will focus on issues such as product development, FinTech and funding. You can meet with local experts and not only, people who have experience in these fields and are engaged to boost the ecosystem.

About Startup Europe Week

Startup Europe Week is an initiative implemented by SEW and promoted by the European Commission and Startup Europe.

Startup Europe Week has been created to include all the European regions in a startup focused program. Many global initiatives have been created to celebrate entrepreneurship. Typically, such events follow the Silicon Valley format (keynote motivational speeches, networking sessions etc).

But Europe is different and requires something more when it comes to starting a business. Regional diversity and local policy making play a big role in shaping European startups. European regions are key players, from helping entrepreneurs to incorporate a company, to providing grants or taxes breaks.

Registrations & Fees


Conference participants are invited to book the session beforehand. Number of places is limited and will be allocated on a first come- first serve basis.

So, if you are interested to celebrate with us "Startup Europe Week", register now.
