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.
Probably 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.
