It is not a myth that the global economy is moving towards a knowledge-based model, where innovation is the main factor responsible for the sustainable development of any country’s economy. Entrepreneurs are the ones who have the courage to adopt innovations and use their ideas intelligently, based on which they build businesses that change the world. Moldova’s entrepreneurial ecosystem is emerging, although it has made significant progress compared to 10 years ago, our country still has much unexplored potential, amid a lack of entrepreneurial culture, limited access to finance, as well as experience in managing its own product-based business.
In order to reduce the gap and encourage the development of startups based on information technologies, the Republic of Moldova aligns with international trends and implements programs dedicated to growing and supporting startup businesses. One of them is the Startup Moldova National Program – an initiative that gives the young people with innovative ideas access to educational programs, infrastructure, consulting, mentoring, opportunities to connect to international events and competitions, as well as attracting funding sources.
