Also today, Dragos Rautu, Modex CTO, will be one of the judges in the event’s pitch session. Modex will also present a Special Award to one of the competing scaleups.

Demo Day Scaleups – Accelerate Digital Transformation, the final BCR-InnovX Accelerator Demo Day event of the year, will be held on Microsoft Teams and broadcasted live on the Facebook pages of InnovX and BCR – part of Erste Bank. “Local innovators are preparing to expand operations on a global scale. Unprecedented times generate incredible innovation, and it’s been a privilege to observe the way Romanian businesses respond to uncertainty with ingenuity. As they gear up for the global impact of their products and services, we’re inviting you to a fully digital event that showcases their projects”, state the event’s organizers. “You’ll get know-how and key insights from local and international speakers, then watch finalists from the Scaleups Cohort as they pitch their innovations to international investors.”

Talking macro-trends in technology for 2021

Scheduled for 14:30-15:00 EET, this panel will be moderated by Anca Luca, Senior Brand Manager at BCR & Business Grower at BCR-InnovX Accelerator. Mihai Ivascu, Modex CEO, will share his views on this issue alongside Mihai Sandu – Head of Digital Sales & Partnerships at BCR, Maria Mihes – Automation Technology Manager at UIPath, and Florin Rosie – Territory Channel Manager SMB Romania Microsoft. Some of the panel’s discussion topics: Would you agree that a side effect of the events in 2020 was an acceleration of processes? If face-to-face interactions start again in 2021, do you think that this trend of acceleration and adoption of digital tools will continue, or do you think that things will go back to how they were in 2019? Which technologies do you think will be trending in 2021? Which of these technologies resonate with you?
