A great day for Techcelerator! At exact 1 year after the launch of the program, Techcelerator is awarded “Best Accelerator Program for Startups” trophy at Business Review Awards Gala, the 14th edition. That is the BR magazines’ flagship event that recognizes the outstanding achievements of the business community: most dynamic entrepreneurs, executives, companies and programs that distinguishes through innovation and bring new products or services on the market.

The award is highly honourable as the jury was formed by distinguished leaders, such as: Ilinca Paun (The Entrepreneurship Academy), Claudiu Nacu (International Finance Corporation, WEB), Dragos Gheban, Catalyst Solutions, Serban Roman, Enterprise Investors and many other key people in Romania.

This year, over 120 nominees and 46 finalists competed in 14 categories and two new categories – Best Financial Partner for SMEs and Best Accelerator Program for Startups – have been included to recognize the massive growth of the local entrepreneurial sector.

Best Acceleration Program for Startups awards the efforts made by business accelerators and incubators in their endeavor to improve Romanian startups and to boost entrepreneurial initiative in Romania.

“This award ensures us that we are on the right moment and place and that we’re doing the right thing. Romania becomes more and more relevant when it comes to new ideas and great entrepreneurial teams, and more and more key stakeholders increase interests in our outcomes (VCs, EU Programs, business angels, etc). We are encouraged to follow on our mission: to support best technology startups to make a switch of mindset, to set up the necessary discipline in doing business and clarify the go-to-market strategy. We want to help as many teams as possible to go on the international market” (Cristina Țoncu, Techcelerator Program Director)
