Fortech is a legacy partner for Techsylania, one of Eastern Europe’s leading technology events, and Startup Avalanche. This program facilitates a bridge between investors and early-stage startups from around the world. It offers entrepreneurs a chance to present their ideas in front of an expert jury and make the leap towards exponential growth.

This year, 250 startups applied for Startup Avalanche. 11 semifinalists made their way to the top and got the chance to pitch in front of the judges, which this year included Calin Vaduva, Fortech’s CEO.

As a company that believes in proactive approaches and is always looking to the future, we admire startups that break barriers. The five startups that made it to the final can disrupt their industries by bringing innovative ideas to sectors like freight transportation, insurance claims, or the FMCG market. 

Fortech contributed to the grand prize for AgUnity. The startup from Australia promises to offer a platform that establishes effective lines of communication and access to service providers to people living in and working with the last mile.  

Also, as a special prize, Fortech added €50.000 in development services for the startups.  

A constant quest for excellence and continuous growth

Since its founding in 2003, Fortech follows a business strategy focused on three important pillars: the development of our outsourcing business model, the formation of strategic partnerships, JV and alliances, the exploration of niched solution areas. This business model ensured organic growth from a team of 5 to a company of 800 members.

In the last five years, Fortech started putting all its knowledge and experience in software engineering to good use in the startup ecosystem, also. With over a decade of expertise in the field, the company started investing in startups and established businesses to support them in building their products and increase their market share. Through this approach, Fortech wants to expand its selection on viable investments and to position itself as a vested partner in the venture.
