About us
We’ve been making entrepreneurial waves in Iași since 2013 through events where people put their business ideas in the spotlight.
We’re a handful of people passionate about building a strong entrepreneurial community in Iași. Startup Weekend, IdeaJAM and Innovation Labs are the events you might know us from.

Our mission is to connect all the wild idea-people with an implementation team, mentors and, hopefully, investors.

Startup Weekend Iași

Startup Weekend Iași

Startup Weekend Iași is an event that follows a simple event model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas determined by popular vote and then start the 54-hour frenzy: business model creation, coding, designing, market validation.

If you’re a developer, designer, marketer or business person and want to build the next hot new startup, this is it!

We usually organise one each year. Stay tuned!

Innovation Labs Iași

Innovation Labs Iași

Innovation Labs invites young professionals to explore the potential of bleeding-edge technologies to solve real problems, for real people – by developing a Minimum Viable Product. Each year, up to 60 teams work from March to May to improve their design, captivate users, develop & test their prototype into an MVP.

In May, Demo Day brings the best teams into the spotlight to gain outreach, traction and continued support from our network of alumni and business connections.

The next edition will start in September. Stay tuned!

Can-do atitude
