The Tech Business Angel Investors Group in Romania

TechAngels is actively contributing to the development of tech businesses from Romania and South-Eastern Europe through investment, expertise and connections since 2013.

About

TechAngels was created in 2013 to fill the need of having a common “meeting place” between early stage technology startups and the investors looking for investment opportunities. The group has two main directives: to educate and support young entrepreneurs through investments, access to acceleration programs and a sum of various other resources needed to grow their business, and to encourage potential business angels to take their first steps in this area of expertise. For whoever is taking into consideration becoming a technology business angel investor, being part of TechAngels is the best solution: as a member of the group, you have access to a considerable number of startups looking for funding, you can benefit from the investment-focused workshops, shared experiences from the other members, and you can make your first investments – either as a private investor or as a syndicate partner – with guidance from the most experienced technology business angels.

Download The Good Advice Booklet

Season 1, 2021

Pitch season is always on at TechAngels, we meet over 70 startups per year and we are screening other 200. Every team we meet is unique but there are also some common traits, especially in business organization and management. We asked our angel investors, who have unique experiences and act as individuals when taking investment decisions, to share one piece of advice they see as being constantly needed, as response to the recurrent problems founders may encounter or as a reflection of their own struggles as entrepreneurs, mentors, business professionals. Thus resulted The Good Advice Booklet which in the end looks like a crash course in management.

As Malin Stefanescu, TechAngels President put it: “Learning from your mistakes is great, learning from other’s mistakes is definitely cheaper.”
