Orlando Nicoara and Liviu Dumitrascu, two of Romanian online’s pioneers, teamed up to launch a new hub dedicated to online entrepreneurs, Welovedigital.ro. Orlando Nicoara has over 15 years of experience in digital, is the former general manager of Mediafax Group and, previously, he worked for Netbridge and a dot com. Liviu Dumitrascu is one of the founders of e-Jobs and partner of InternetCorp.
On his personal blog, Orlando says the project “started from Liviu’s idea to have a space here to work day by day and also to build a community which would help and work together on digital projects” and mentions both himself and Liviu Dumitrascu will have their offices within the hub, with “at least other 2 names of Romanian online” to be joining them.
The hub will be operational starting April 1st, the tool for in-hub communication is Slack Standard and the access in the hub will be 24/24. WeLoveDigital.ro starts with one hub, downtown Bucharest, and will expand afterwards. For Wall-Street.ro, Nicoara mentioned that the investment in the hub was quite important and might be of over Euro 50,000.
The online entrepreneurs can join Welovedigital.ro by renting an office for a minimum period of one month, for a price that varies between Euro 200-250 per month (depending on the renting period) plus VAT. Those who rent offices in the new hub have access to all the facilities of a business office (internet, conference rooms, coffee and fruits) and also have the possibility to register their business’ social address or a work point within the hub.
Considering the experience of the 2 founders of the hub, the most important element that comes with renting an office at Welovedigital is direct face-to-face access to Orlando’s and Liviu’s expertise, as they will offer advice, recommendation, will get involved and invest in different projects or help the entrepreneurs to find other investors.
