This weekend, Alin Iftemi, Head of Modex, was amongst the jurors at GoBiz 2019, a business ideas pitch competition for students enrolled at Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies (ASE) who want to be successful as entrepreneurs. Besides selecting the most innovative projects and offering advice to participants, Alin also spoke about the IT component in start-ups and how important this is in order to succeed, business-wise.

The third edition of GoBiz, a launch ramp for students who want to become successful entrepreneurs, comprised projects which were enlisted in one of the three sections: IT & Tech – a business idea which brings to the market innovative products or IT and tech services, Social Entrepreneurship – a business idea meant to develop, finance and implement solutions to social, cultural or environmental problems and Open – a section destined for other types of business ideas.

“During this weekend’s bootcamp held in Predeal, I was glad to discover some interesting projects and business ideas and to interact with people passionate about learning, about widening their horizon through insights obtained from professionals”, states Alin Iftemi. “The interest for blockchain, FinTech and disruptive technologies is on the rise and, from what I’ve seen at GoBiz 2019, students are working hard to achieve their goals and to turn their ideas into profitable businesses.” Early next year, the three most promising ideas will go into a 6-month mentorship program.
