Community talks: Companies from the MsM Family share their story
On lessons learned and raising money.
A discussion with Tiberiu Lupu (RO4, Evertoys), Emil Olteanu (RO4, Evertoys), Bogdan Aron (RO4, 2Performant), and Dorin Boerescu (2Performant).
Description: 2 Topics X 2 Companies
Topic 1: Lessons learned. Dorin, Bogdan, Emil, and Tibi will share the lessons they have learned from doing business, how these lessons impact their decision-making, and how can these lessons be adapted for you. The discussion will be nudged by Radu Atanasiu.
Topic 2: Raising money. Both companies are looking for a round of financing in 2019. Many MsM alumni have manifested their interest to do some angel investing. We explore the synergy of these two phenomena by showcasing Evertoys and 2Performant, companies where several members of the community have already invested. At the end, both companies will present a short pitch.
Evertoys is an upscale platform for toys-as-a-service. The three founders have initially drawn the business plan during their Executive MBA, as an exercise for the Entrepreneurship class, taught by Andreas Antonopoulos. After graduation, they thought “why not?” and really started the company. The first two investors were the aforementioned Andreas and Radu. Meanwhile, they have raised (2018) a second round from Sparking Capital.
2Performant (former 2Parale) is the local leader in affiliate marketing, currently expanding overseas. Aside from Bogdan Aron, the Chief Product Officer, being a MSM EMBA alumnus, several members of the community (Dora & Istvan, Sergiu, Radu) have invested in various rounds, along other investors and seed funds.
WHEN: February 27, starting with 18.30.
