EY Emerging Entrepreneur Of The Year In Technology

Commenting on the award and on being included in EY’s Entrepreneurs Book, Mihai Ivascu stated: “I am honoured and humbled by this recognition, I couldn’t be happier. I believe that an entrepreneur should be a constructive mix of pure management and product vision. Personally, I’ve always been close to the product, I’ve enjoyed drawing products from A to Z, transforming ideas and concepts into reality.”

In a context where blockchain was considered a hard-to-understand technology and blockchain implementations were regarded as expensive to implement, Modex has democratized – through its products and services – access to blockchain technology. “Blockchain was like an expensive and hard-to-find vitamin, instead of being an aspirin”, adds Mihai. “Now, thanks to Modex’s offering, any developer or database administrator can implement this groundbreaking technology in just one hour.”
