Following the collaboration that started in the summer of 2021, June Communications and Fortech Investments signed for the extension of the PR partnership, having as a common objective sustaining the development and expansion of start-ups that have innovative B2B solutions, along with their creators. The PR agency will continue to communicate upon the projects carried out by the Cluj-based company, focused on capital investments, smart money, technology, and the capabilities that are necessary for the development of Romanian start-ups, towards all their stakeholders: business partners, clients, employees, media and potential investors.
„We are very pleased to be the communication partners of Fortech Investments. We share a mission, where each entity offers the start-ups and the founders the specific solutions and resources to sustain them in achieving their business goals, plus the passion of helping the entrepreneurs accomplish their dreams”, affirms Iuliana Floricică, cofounder of June Communications.
The Romanian start-up ecosystem substantially grew over the last year, and the entrepreneurship concept caught up in all the activity fields and larger age groups. The Romanian venture market broke the 100 million euros barrier, with a volume of capital raised by start-ups having more than tripled compared to the previous year, according to the Romanian Venture Report, made by How To Web for 2021.
