23 Nov 2013Fortech Supports Students to #defineCluj


#defineCluj is a project initiated by an association of students from the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, aiming to encourage students and young graduates to develop innovative projects in the field of ITC.

Focused on entrepreneurship, #defineCluj aims at bringing closer together the two main actors – companies and educational institutions – in a dialogue with students.

The first edition of the #defineCluj conference took place on the 14th of November and consisted of several presentations and a round table debate on the topic of education as a launchpad for transforming Cluj into a genuine IT creation center.

As partner of #defineCluj, Fortech supported the conference. Invited to share his entrepreneurial experiences, Calin Vaduva, Fortech’s CEO and cofounder spoke about entrepreneurship as an approach or attitude rather than just owning a business and shared thoughts from his journey of building Fortech into one of largest IT outsourcing companies in Cluj-Napoca and Romania.

Prior to the event, Calin Vaduva said: “#defineCluj is a brave but also welcomed project for the local community, for students and also for software companies and universities. I look forward to meeting as many future professionals and entrepreneurs as possible at the event and to share interesting opinions on what the IT sector in Cluj-Napoca has been, is and might become.”
