• ecosystem builder

    Experienced builder of teams and communities in more than 8 countries.


    My latest ecosystem building project includes RoStartup and working with the NE RDA team. My role is to help facilitate the creation on a bottom-up Startup Ecosystem Strategy for Romania.


    I'm in the process of finalising ICA to get my Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential with ICF.

    About me

    I am 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), a Community Ambassador and Program Manager for Startup Institute (London and Berlin) and a Global Program Manager at Philips.


    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.


    Sometimes (though not often) I write.
