Last week we celebrated an important milestone: on May 9th, TechHub Bucharest turned 1!
It's only been a year, but since May 9 2013 we've organized or hosted over 100 events, becoming a favourite place for tech lovers and entrepreneurs to meet and discuss subjects relevant to them. Over 3000 of them came to TechHub Bucharest in the past year to learn about technology, financing, entrepreneurship, mobile apps, community management, online privacy and many, many more.
We've had over 100 key entrepreneurs and specialists as speakers or mentors at TechHub Bucharest, some of which we'll mention here: Bill Aulet (Managing Director at the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship), Mike Butcher (Senior Editor TechCrunch ?i Co-Founder TechHub Global), Bart Decrem (Senior Vice-President Walt Disney Company), Tim O�Brien (General Manager Apps and Platforms Groups Microsoft) and many others, equally important.
More good news!
On our first anniversary, we also expanded our space to accommodate 25 more residents, who will join us in the international community that is TechHub.
And we're also launching a new event series, especially designed to bring globally successful tech entrepreneurs and specialists on stage to talk about their experiences and share with us relevant examples and advice. The series is called Tech Excellence and we're proud to have a special guest over: Mr. Florin Talpes, Bitdefender CEO. He will join us next Thursday and you can already sign up here.
It's been an intense journey since Daniel, Stefan and Bogdan founded TechHub Bucharest on May 9 2013, but we're making important steps to supporting the tech community in Romania and helping entrepreneurs build globally successful products. This was year one, but there's so much more to come!
Until then, this was our first year:
