Start-up.ro shared Madalina’s thoughts of being a mentor and the whole InnovX – BCR experience
“As the director of the Startups 2021 cohort, I saw the accelerator from all angles and understood – hot and inside – all the turmoil and complexity of the problems that come with the brilliance of the idea of innovation. It is a difficult exercise, an exercise in which all companies enter somewhat relaxed, but they come to understand that certain slippage is not tolerated, that it takes a lot of discipline and a lot of will. This, in my view, is also the effort required to market a successful product or service”
The InnovX – BCR Demo Day is the most anticipated event for every cohort. In the video below, Madalina is sharing some thoughts about the event and the accelerating program itself.
“The accelerator is a great experience. the startup ecosystem as an idea is a fascinating world, a world of which I became addicted because it does create addiction. On one side I learned a lot from the startups, from the participants and on the other side I’m sure we will manage to create common experiences. The workshops I provide are centered around the idea of how the right tools can help motivate and attract the human capital while enabling exponential growth. “
