    Sometimes (though not often enough) I write.

    About me

    Currently, I am the Global Program Manager for Philips.

     

    I used to be an entrepreneur passionate about building startup ecosystems around the world, including places like San Francisco, Santiago, Berlin, London, and Amsterdam.

     

    Previously, I've raised €7M as an EU funds consultant, founded the first pre-accelerator in Romania, founded an international network of events called Creative Coffee, and have raised funds for my own remote talent startup.

     

    Since moving back to Europe (2014), I've enjoyed the ride of being a Manager for Rockstart (Amsterdam) and a Community Ambassador and Program Manager for Startup Institute (London and Berlin).

     

    I mentored and advised several NGOs and accelerators who are helping entrepreneurs grow, most notably for Rubik Hub, the largest entrepreneurial initiative in the North East of Romania.
