“The most important thing for us at Startup Moldova is community, we believe in the fact that everything is coming together, and everyone that came here did that in order to support the Moldovan startup ecosystem” said Natalia Bejan, Director Executiv of Startup Moldova “There is a real tech and investable ecosystem here, and there will not be long before we find unicorns in Moldova!”
Dumitru Alaiba, the Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Economic Development and Digitalization of the Republic of Moldova, also commented on the success of the event, saying, “Your idea should be one that keeps you up at night, educates stubbornness, and develops resilience. The struggle it brings will shape you and take you further, regardless of the outcome. Remember, you are here for something much bigger than just revenue. Keep fighting for what you believe in, and know that there are people in this government and in this country who are ready to help and support courage, boldness, and what you think is a good investment of your time and effort. We are working on bettering the funding schemes available, and we are happy to listen and be with you every step of the way. Thank you for doing this – keep up the fight!”
