More about Startup Hero

We want to support the ideas of entrepreneurs and we want to come to their assistance with both innovative products and an inspirational dose. I think this series will be highlighted, in particular, by the genuine emotion that the narrators convey. We aimed to show a different perspective, one in which people with extraordinary wilpower challenged themselves and turned their business ideas into reality. Their experiences are very interesting because they come from different areas with  stories from which we all have something to learn from.", said Alexandru Neagu, Director of SME Directorate, from OTP Bank Romania.
