The mission of StartUp HUB is to encourage entrepreneurship through support schemes, to contribute reducing unemployment through adult education programmes and to increase EU funding in the region with the help of its experts.

About Us

The HUB was founded in 2021 as a response for post-covid economy restart. Since then, the initial activities of the association have expanded considerably, and it is currently carrying out projects worth 10 million Euros in various fields: business start-up and development, modernization of vocational training and adult education, promotion and introduction of agricultural innovations.

StartUp HUB is offering services which includes the access to a co-working space, the access to conference rooms, business consulting, networking, as well as the access to a startup enthusiast community and professionals.


Our main mission is to promote, to support and to empower the startup ecosystem in the central region of Romania. 

We encourage entrepreneurship among youngsters. Through EDPs (Entrepreneurship Development Programs) in 2022 we gave the opportunity to 100 young entrepreneurs to start their own business with 25000 Euro investments funded by European Structural and Investment Funds (EU grants through the Romanian government).
