The young entrepreneur who sold Confidas last year will be tasked with discovering new companies for the holding to invest in.
V7 Capital Investment Holding, which specializes in supporting and developing Romanian startups and businesses, announces the expansion of its management team with the addition of Eduard Burghelia.
After selling the financial analysis platform Confidas, the entrepreneur joins the investment holding as a Venture Partner, bringing valuable expertise in entrepreneurship and successful business scaling.
In his new role, Eduard Burghelia (26 years old) will lead the identification of promising startups and businesses for V7 Capital’s investments, fostering the expansion of the company’s portfolio. Additionally, he will offer strategic expertise and support to the existing portfolio, assisting those companies in unlocking their full potential for development and innovation.
“We recruited Eduard to join the V7 team based on his profound understanding of the Romanian startup and business landscape, coupled with his familiarity with our strategic approach. Equally significant, we sought someone capable of identifying investment opportunities aligned with our DNA as engaged investors. Leveraging his experience in entrepreneurship and developing Confidas, Eduard brings valuable insights to V7. We are confident he will bring a substantial contribution to our mission of fostering innovation and growth in the startup industry”, said Iulian Cîrciumaru, Founder & Managing Partner, V7 Capital.
“I have known the V7 team since I was 19, as they invested in Confidas right from the start. Over the past 7 years, we have built a relationship of trust and mutual respect, and I’m excited about the chance to utilize my network and accumulated experience to support the companies in V7’s portfolio. Moreover, joining the team provides me with an excellent opportunity to explore and understand emerging industries and technologies, which consistently fuels my entrepreneurial spirit”, Eduard elaborated on his decision to join the V7 team.
At the age of 21, in December 2018, Eduard Burghelia launched Confidas, a financial analysis platform for companies. The business successfully attracted investments from various sources, including V7 Capital and GapMinder. Last year, Eduard sold the platform with 20,000 users to Termene.ro, a company with a similar business focus. A graduate of The Entrepreneurship Academy, Eduard received the esteemed “Tânărul Antreprenor al Anului 2019” (Young Entrepreneur of 2019) award from Romanian Business Leaders, a distinguished business community in Romania. In 2020, he also featured in the exclusive “Forbes 30 Under 30” list.
