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.


For this year, Business Review has rebranded the Innovation in Technology category as Commitment to Innovation in Technology.

The winner in 2017 was FlashNet, the Brasov-based company implementing intelligent systems for smarter cities and better infrastructure.

“It’s a great honor to receive this award in the name of the entire FlashNet team that stands behind this innovative and successful project called InteliLIGHT,” said Csilla Csaki, CFO of FlashNet, during last year’s Gala.

The company is currently providing an innovative smart street lighting control system called inteliLIGHT and a smart grids management solution called inteliGRID.

In 2017, the company continued to promote and implement its solutions on the international markets.

Up to now, the company deployed its smart street lighting control systems on the European markets, but also in Asia, Middle East, Australia, Africa, North America and South America.
