“The exposure of any sector of the Romanian economy to the interaction with partners in the global market inevitably leads to the accelerated development of skills at the level of individuals and structures. Especially in the software industry, the maturation of these skills, procedures and structures creates the prerequisites for the emergence of a true indigenous entrepreneurship, able to take over and enhance these assets with its own products. The emergence of formal tools for observing and analyzing this phenomenon and for communication between community members is therefore beneficial at this moment, both the industry awards gala and the PIN magazine responding to these goals,” says Traian Luca, founder of Gemini CAD Systems
The event enjoys a relevant presence from local entrepreneurship and multinational companies in the field, which carry out part of their operations in Iași. PIN Awards 2023 is the ideal networking and connection opportunity for the Iași community.
“Iasi is currently a city truly open to investment, able to create, attract and retain intelligence. A city that is not missing from the European map of successful regional cities”, believes Dan Zaharia, president of the PIN Association for the Promotion of Technology and Creative Industries.
