We all know that here, in Banat, the golden age of building and advancing a software company by staying 100% focused on providing outsourcing services to foreign clients have faded away.

A good news is that this happens already at the startups level. There is a pack of 10-15 local companies that have already launched various types of own products or services with promising results. These stories should be told and heard. And, of course learned and replicated.
In this context, Timisoara Startup Hub initiates a series of periodical events that will showcase B2B apps developed by startups from Timisoara.
This April 2nd-3rd will see a new Timisoara edition of the Business Days Conferences.
