About the Startup Avalanche competition

“Avalanche isn’t just about throwing some startups on stage in front of hypothetical investors. It is about creating a platform for international collaboration among startups, showcasing the opportunities of our ecosystem, and providing meaningful support and opportunities for promising early-stage startups,” explains Jennifer Austin, co-founder of Risky Business.

A word from our CEO, Voicu Oprean, on the stage of Techsylvania: “When I started AROBS 20 years ago, we faced many of the same challenges these early-stage startups do today. Now, we have a team of 700+ across 4 countries. We are wishing the same success for all the startups that joined Techsylvania Avalanche! We’re proud to be a part of helping build opportunities for not just Romanian startups, but also for startups all around the world.”
