Bucharest Business Services
Briefing & Business Mixer

Connecting cutting-edge BSCs with top Tech Solutions

Technology is disrupting and revolutionizing major industries, including Business Services.
As technology disrupts virtually every industry, our Bucharest Business Services Briefing & Biz Mixer briefs Romania-based BSC execs on a few process-automation ideas and lessons-learned from your peers.

We are at the beginning of a revolution in automation that will transform both the productivity and positions of white-collar workforces.

Bucharest is on the world’s radar-screen as a global city for top tech talent and digital solutions. Billion-dollar unicorns have been spawned in this eco-system, and more are sure to follow.

This late-afternoon Business Briefing – followed by fine wines and light dinner on the balcony – brings together Romania’s bustling Business Services execs with Technology companies offering cutting-edge process-automation solutions.

We’re pleased to also include the ecosystem of Corporate venturing (CVCs) and institutional support – which continues as another key source of capital and clients for Tech companies.

We’re pleased to have strong partners in Bucharest, including:

  • Romania IR Association
  • ANIS IT Association
  • Transilvania Business Magazine
  • Bucharest Technology Week
