Raising the Romanian startup ecosystem and supporting tech innovation.

Startup Wise Guys Romania

Romania is on its way to becoming a serious player in the CEE startup ecosystem. Although it is very early days, Romania’s startup community is showing real potential to take it to the big leagues. It boasts  an organically developed support base of investors, experts and local talent which are sustaining the upward trajectory of many innovative companies such as Uipath.   

In our 10+ years of experience at Startup Wise Guys we know it is best to strike whilst the iron is hot. We believe that now is the time to develop our pre-seed VC and acceleration services within Romania. We want to fuse the brightest ideas of Romanian founders with international capital and market know-how. 

Located in the dynamic tech hubs of Cluj Napoca and Bucharest, Startup Wise Guys is perfectly positioned to uplift not only talented founders, but to glue the entrepreneurial culture of the region together. We want to make Romania an epicenter of tech innovation and growth.

Who is it for?

Our Romania programs are designed for local early stage startups who are looking for a launchpad into the global startup community, and also international teams who want see the region’s potential and are looking to adopt Romania as a strategic destination to grow in. We are seeking enthusiastic founders who are ambitious, strategically minded and committed to making a difference with their companies

It’s also for investors and partners, both local and international, who seek to join forces with Startup Wise Guys to set up tomorrow’s talent for global success. Romania provides a unique opportunity for diverse investment pipelines and we believe it really could be the start of something great.
