On the 25th of August, under the initiative of the Startup Moldova Foundation, Chişinău’s Vino Pizza&Wine was the venue for yet another iteration of the ‘community “Speed Dating” event. This initiative is a part of a series of community-focused events, specially organized to strengthen the relationship between tech startups, media and not only, aiming at seeding future partnerships.
Event Dynamics and Participation –
Embracing a speed dating approach, startups, ranging from brizy.io (No-code’ website builder for agencies & web pros) or iShunea Tech (Solutions Integrator – IST-Integrator), underscored their business propositions and innovations, in parallel with media entities, including established platforms such as diez.md and Businessclass.md, and significant players like Httpool (Httpool is Meta Authorized Sales Partner across Europe and APAC). The Founders and Media outlets actively engaged, they discussed about market trends and subject that could align with their editorial narratives.
Key Insights and Strategic Implications –
1. Digital Platforms sharing insights with MEDIA: The presence of startups like Clickschool.org (helping to write code from the very first day of the course and start a new career as a Software Engineer.) and Unde.io, (the one step solution for all your event’s needs from planning to promotion and beyond) – Media outlets and those digital platforms had the opportunity to share perspectives, had valuable interviews, and even distribute the solution through media channels for further potential beneficiaries.
2. Sustainability as a Core Theme: With startups like respiro.md (Respiro helps you find a psychologist for your needs) and (Solar Energy Efficiency Calculation | Envirio), the emphasis on crafting solutions in line with global sustainability objectives was evident for MEDIA, in order to distribute in their newswire timeline.
3. In-depth Media-Startup Interaction: For media outlets, such events serve as a conduit to directly interact with the tech industry, enabling them to capture the “bullet points” of emerging technologies and, in turn, craft more informed and relevant content.
