Welcome to Techsylvania!
For a few days in June (17-20), Cluj Napoca was alive and buzzing with the spirit of future and technology: IT talents, investors, business people and technology experts got together for Techsylvania: the leading technology event in Eastern Europe.
Over the 4 days of the event, 1500 participants – tech enthusiasts and business people – had the chance to connect, hack and share ideas. Creative minds, technologists and innovators from all around the world attended Techsylvania to infuse and disperse inspiration, ideas and knowledge.
Already at its fourth annual edition, Techsylvania was a great opportunity for attendants to gain an insight into how the future might be transformed by technology, to learn from successful entrepreneurs, to meet investors or to scout the hottest startups and industry trends. The event held a two-day conference, a Hackathon which challenged the best IT minds in the region, as well as a StartUp competition.
CertAsig, which is a market innovator with its insurance products for IT & technology companies, was a partner in the event. We were energised by the idea to sponsor the Official Dinner which opened the conference on June 19th and was hosted by the British Romanian Chamber of Commerce, our longtime supporter and partner. The dinner took place at the Museum of Art.
“We’re thrilled to meet the IT and technology business community and to support their ambitious plans and their current and future successes. Insurance may not be the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks about tech and IT, but every business needs a backup plan and we’re the expert on that. CertAsig has tailored a menu of insurance products and solutions that are meticulously fitted to support technology and IT businesses, be they start-ups, established companies or big multinational names”, says James Grindley, CEO of CertAsig. “Let the future begin, we’re here to help make it less unpredictable!”
