The partnership with Innovations Labs continues the Open innovation path that we started in Romania in 2016 aiming to improve the users’ experience through digital products that are developed in partnership with the technological and entrepreneurial ecosystem.

In March the program started with 6 hackathon events in the main cities around Romania: Bucharest, Cluj, Timisoara, Iasi, Sibiu and Alba Iulia where a number of 62 teams have been selected to enter in the mentoring program.

On 22nd of May, Demo Day Bucharest marked the grand finale of the Innovation Labs 2017, where the 40 finalist teams from Bucharest, Cluj, Iasi, Sibiu, Timisoara and Alba Iulia presented their results after the 3 months mentoring program.
