As the 13th edition of Business Review Awards Gala, BR magazine’s flagship event that recognizes the outstanding achievements of the business community, will take place on March 5, we want to put the spotlight on the 11 categories from which the independent jury will select the winners for their exceptional performance in 2017.ENTER THE COMPETITION
Romanian entrepreneur and investor Radu Georgescu was awarded as Business Leader of the Year during last year’s ceremony. Since then, Georgescu exited GECAD NET, one of the first companies he ever founded. The firm was taken over by the Romanian IT training player Bittnet.
Meanwhile, Georgescu said that the deal marked his official exit from the last entrepreneurship project he initiated, leaving him more time to focus on the investment side. The founder of Gecad Ventures announced it late 2017 that he will focus 100 percent on the development of this line of business.
Georgescu said that in this new stage he will seek young entrepreneurs with ideas that can revolutionize the tech market.
