The more we integrate regionally, the easier will be to integrate globally: Live talk with Mihnea Craciun, Managing Director @ Endeavor Romania

, ~

Five years after setting foot in the Bulgarian startup ecosystem the global organization that supports high-impact entrepreneurs in developing economies is expanding across the SEE region. The plans for expansion of the operations of the organization had been known for some time, but the official announcement that a branch was launched in Romania came in the middle of January 2021. The Managing Director of Endeavor Romania will be Mihnea Craciun – an experienced banker and a former Deputy Director of the EBRD. The realization of the project was backed by EBRD together with the support of some local business leaders. This news marks Endeavor’s sixth office in Europe where the organization has been present for 10 years and their 38th office worldwide.
