ScaleOut Romania

ScaleOut Romania is a smart internationalization platform launched by Romanian Business Leaders Foundation in 2017 with a bold goal: to build a Romania that is confident in its power to produce results and provide knowledge overseas.

Romanian Business Leaders Foundation is a community of Romanian entrepreneurs, managers and professionals from various industries. What unites us is our desire to contribute to a public good greater than any company, industry or specific domains interests. We believe that Romania will become a better country for doing business when it becomes a better country for its people.

ScaleOut Romania

We are aiming to help Romanian startups and scaleups surpass some of their mental barriers by putting them in a structured interaction (including face-to-face discussions) with people / startups / scaleups from different business cultures.

We want to change mentalities through our platform of interaction. We will offer to Romanian entrepreneurs the opportunity to interact with other entrepreneurs in the target markets, to understand the foreign business opportunities and to find easier partners, clients and suppliers through internationalization. Also, the ScaleOut project provides know-how, studies and punctual information about business opportunities abroad.
