Andrei Botescu, Co-Founder of Pegas Workshops, will join the first edition of Startup Path, the event aiming to support the growth of a stronger entrepreneur community in Romania and Eastern Europe, organized by Business Review on September 10-11 at Impact Hub Bucharest.
Andrei Botescu is the man behind the revival of the iconic Pegas bicycle, many a Romanian’s favorite childhood buddy. Relaunched in 2012, under his supervision, in 2017 the company managed to get a complete portfolio for each and every category of bike, from urban to e-bikes. Moreover, it launched Romania’s first electric bikes, as well as several brands for other outdoor products such as vintage skates, electric transportation – electric scooter and electric longboard, and kendamas. Last year Pegas launched three new mono-stores in Bucharest, Timisoara and Ramnicu Valcea.
Andrei will join the panel discussion themed “Tapping into the niche: Trend setting entrepreneurs who built a community around their businesses” on the second day of the event (September 11).
Startup Path is an event dedicated to growth, to learning and to connecting the dots while having unique experiences. It brings together all actors of the startup scene, from universities, accelerators, to investors and thought leaders that would help entrepreneurs on their path to growth.
Business Review’s vision is to help build, feed and support the growth of a stronger entrepreneur community in Romania and Eastern Europe by becoming a platform that best promotes young entrepreneurs and their interests, fosters collaboration, gives them access to networking and funding opportunities via a well established network and expands their knowledge through relevant and curated content and news.
