Environmental & Sustainability Summit

ABOUT

Business Review brings you an event that discusses environmental protection with a focus on waste management through a different approach. For years, all actors involved - national and local authorities, packaging manufacturers, Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) in the market, lightbulbs or batteries, waste management outsourcers/third-party entities, sanitation companies, recycling companies etc. - have been discussing awareness of the system’s shortcomings in Romania.

Track 1: Building Communities

It's essential to build a start-up community: a critical mass of entrepreneurial leaders who embrace creating something new, a long-term vision to make that community a place where dreams can become reality, a philosophy that welcomes everyone who wants to engage, at any level, around that purpose and, finally, a commitment to have lots of activities and events that engage people in the actual act of entrepreneurship.

Keynotes, presentations, case studies and role models will help you on the path to building a community.

Track 2: Hacking Growth Track

Growth hacking has become a highly-demanded discipline for startups. Is all about driving as much growth as you can, with spending as little money as possible. All good growth hackers are driven by the challenge to be disciplined in prioritizing and testing marketing ideas, and religiously analyzing results to see which tactics worked best and should be scaled out further, to continually improve until that "Aha Moment" is found that will lead to rapid, viral and affordable business growth.

Incubators, accelerators, co-working spaces are among the topics discussed in presentations and panel discussions.

Track 3: Scaling up

Scaling up business resources for startups includes executive education, coaching, inspirational and engaging events, supporting software and dynamic online learning. Not all start-ups make it big, but the ones that do greatly impact society by means of new technology, services and increased employment.

What it takes to scale, How-To, Success stories told by entrepreneurs that scaled and funding models: crowdfunding/ICO/Seed investments are among the topics covered in presentations.

Track 4: Feed your Business

Technology driven solutions, setting up the right legal framework and IP, as well as getting the right board of advisors are among the topics covered in this track through a panel discussion.

Track 5: Go to Market

Marketing tools and how to do it right, including how to use social media as a business strategy. Presentations of entrepreneurs with success stories, case studies and an expert panel are among the tools to get you on the path to success.

REALTY FORUM

About

Now at its 17th edition, Business Review's Realty Forum has grown alongside the local property market to become the leading Romanian real estate event. This June, we bring together developers, investors and consultants, to see whether success breeds success for local real estate players in 2018, as the market continues to build on the positive results seen in the last couple of years.

One thing is for sure, Bucharest has already grown to compete with other regional capitals. However, numerous Romanian cities are also increasingly more present on the real estate investors’ map. Consequently, this year we will focus not only on the office, residential, commercial and industrial markets in Bucharest, but also on those in Timișoara, Cluj-Napoca, Iași and Brașov to see what makes them so attractive to investors and what it means for the market overall.
