What makes us Unique
SeedBlink is the largest equity crowdfunding platform in Southeast Europe, both in terms of amounts traded and the number of investors, offering those interested a simple way to invest in innovative startups.
We address both investors looking for new opportunities and startups that need financing. Our mission is to democratize investments in startups and to develop the innovative entrepreneurial environment in the region. We start building this community interested in investing in Romania - the easiest place for direct communication - and then expand our efforts by articulating specific processes in the countries in the region.
The main advantage of SeedBlink is the deep understanding of local financial and entrepreneurial needs. Although the company's vision and long-term goals aim for a global approach, we strongly believe that local action is a viable and effective way to create opportunities and strengthen the community. The development of the ecosystem and the size of our success depends primarily on enhancing the energy accumulated by educated technology startups in the region.
The favorite candidates listed on SeedBlink are innovative startups with proven traction, with an already tested MVP, ethical and with a clear, articulated business model, with potential for development in both the local and international markets.
Co-founder & CEO
After 20 years of banking, 15 years being part of Banca Transilvania team, in 2018 I started a new life journey, willing to build new experiences, to find new perspectives and purpose by developing my skills and autonomy as an entrepreneur in the new world of business and helping for the greater good.
We have co-founded first, in 2018, Human Finance, a platform that provides knowledge digital tools and aggregates the investment readiness rating for the early-stage innovative startups. In 2019 we made a spin-off and launched SeedBlink, the first equity crowdfunding platform developed in this part of Europe, that already helped more than 12 innovative startups to get total funding rounds of more than EUR 3.5 mil. Our plans are to expand SeedBlink operations to other SEE countries and to contribute to the development of a fresh and ethical business ecosystem.
