123ContactForm-led workshop inaugurates new Banat IT program to diffuse technology in local economy

Banat IT and Timisoara Startup Hub jointly initiate Chance2Enhance a program aiming to locally-developed techology diffusion in local companies through a first event to feature 123ContactForm tools.

One of the components of Banat IT’s mission is to build frameworks to facilitate interactions between local tech and non-tech sectors, in order to increase the usage of IT&C in the overall regional economy and the society at large, riding the global economic and technological trends.

123ContactForm opens Chance2EnhanceProbably there’s no need for significant effort to note that within Timisoara/Timis County/Banat economy there is a significant rift between the top industries, driven mostly by foreign investment (IT, telecom, automotive), and the traditional ones, resulted mostly through the transformation of the old, pre-’89, “communist businesses” or emerged as startups launched by local entrepreneurs. Furthermore, it is obvious that those more dynamic tech industries products and services are targeting almost exclusively foreign clients and markets and that even Romanian tech business owners are preferring to sell to and support the more predictable, educated, and obviously richer US or EU customers,  and not the local businesses, frequently operated in the same neighborhood.

Keeping up with the fast pacing business environment

The 6th edition of Business Days Timisoara – 6-7th of April 2016

It’s that time of the year again when managers and entrepreneurs meet at the biggest business event in the region.

Important issues with regard to the global challenges that technology brings and how it will change us, the enterprises, the industries and the society will be discussed.  Such important issues will be put into discussion by experienced professionals well known for their visions and performances.

In preparation of the event, Business Days has conducted a research within a pool of 250 entrepreneurs, top managers, managers and professionals (experts) selected in three well developed counties from a economic standpoint, in the Western part of Romania ( Timiș, Arad and Bihor) which indicated that the top 3 industries where the region can perform are agriculture, software development and IT&C. Also, the researchers questioned participants about the main success business factors in the Western region of Romania. In descending order of the recorded votes, the factors that determine success in business have been: the team, innovation, the business plan, the business idea, networking, technology comprehension and use, the taxation system and taxation, access to easy financing, the starting capital, the intensity of the competition within the market, authorities’ support and “the old, good luck”. One may argue that technology comprehension and use deserves more credit because of the innovation drive it brings. Furthermore, whatever the industry a firm competes in, the technology comprehension and use is not only a competitive necessity but it might even be a source of competitive advantage.

The program of the event is built around this idea, part of the plenary sessions, workshops and debates focusing about digital transformation of the industries, the online business environments, online marketing, besides more general business topics. Banat IT is actively involving in the promotion of the event and in shaping its content, by encouraging IT companies in the region to be present, to engage with the participating officials and representatives of local and visiting companies, to expose the issues they are perceiving in the regional economy and the solutions they imagine, to network and to start/continue building partnerships.

Further details regarding the event program can be found here.

Don’t miss this opportunity to meet interesting people and to learn how to keep up with the fast pacing environment.

HackTM 2015 – Let’s Code and Make Together

Programmers are a different breed of professionals. I am stating this after spending thousands of hours with them (as a non-programmer and attentive observer). Future or current, junior or senior, freelance or employee, entrepreneur or consultant programmers, they all have a special set of personality traits significantly differentiating them from other guilds: they strive to create, they want to share, they dear to compete, they show the mastery of their art, they chase the challenges much more than others.

I do not know another professional group members so regularly committing time after long office hours presenting and debating new technologies, showcasing core-business or collateral, pet-projects, asking for and/or offering feedback, late in the week’s working days meetup events. They are mentoring in the 7 CoderDojos in the Timisoara Metropolitan Area for almost 52 Saturdays a year, bringing knowledge, friendship, self-confidence, empowerment and joy to large groups of 7-17 years old coding ninjas, they future co-workers, employees or, why not employers… 🙂

Their passion drives their interest and activities in so many different directions, best demonstrated by the diversity of Timișoara constellation of specialized tech communities illustrated in the city’s meetup.com record.
