Strengthening AmCham Romania's Relationship with Startups

1/2022 – 5/2022

This project synthesized strategies for the American Chamber of Commerce in Romania to strengthen Romania’s startup community. Interviewing nine startups in the United States and Romania identified networking as a major contributing factor to a startup’s success in both countries, and that startups in Romania struggle developing strong networks. A case study revealed this was because Romania has a smaller and less well connected startup community. Through observational research and interviews with US startup communities, we determined strategies these support structures (e.g., accelerators, incubators, and workspaces) use to lower the barrier of entry for startups. We created an infographic and resource guide describing how these strategies could benefit the Romanian startup community.
