We believe in creative ideas and in the attitude to change the world for the better. We established the CRITBIZ entrepreneurship development program to generate a change of perspective in the Romanian entrepreneurial sphere.

The mission of the CRITBIZ program is the strategic development of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the North-West region (Bihor, Bistrita-Nasaud, Cluj, Maramures, Salaj and Satu Mare counties) in the creative industries and IT sectors by creating a professional collaboration network and support communities. For this, we will be working on the entrepreneurial training of at least 400 participants in the region and choosing 48 sustainable business plans for financing with max. 40,000 Euro.

The principles defining the CRITBIZ program are: social innovation, equality, accessibility, sustainability and efficient use of resources. By setting up new, innovative businesses, we contribute together to the region’s economic growth, job creation, the inclusion of young people, the unemployed and all those interested in entrepreneurship, the promotion of female entrepreneurship and the protection of the environment through sustainable development – this way we are generating a change of perspective.
