Silvia Mihailescu, Marketing, Communication & CSR ING Bank RomaniaWe created and developed Startarium over the years, together with Impact Hub, with the mission to support startup entrepreneurs. RE:BUILD is one of the Startarium initiatives during the last 5 years and which proved their utility, with the reaction of entrepreneurs and specialists in the first cohort showing us that this program is extremely relevant and phase 2 will be more then welcomed. With the global support program from ING Group, Build Back Better, and the new partners Startarium, we manage to round up the support both with educational and financial resources
Dan Oros, Head of Marketing GoogleWe are happy to be able to contribute in offering to local entrepreneurs access to the educational resources and needed instruments to develop their business in the digital environment. The online presence, instruments for productivity and collaboration, but also promo and increase of product and services visibility offered by them are very important for a sustainable development of the business
Besides the resource packages, Startarium opens a new series of free session of consulting and mentorship, during a period of 4 weeks, for 50 entrepreneurs looking to reinvent themselves.
