About this event

"Raising the next Romanian Unicorn" will join two awesome speakers: James Clark - Head of Tech and Lifesciences, Primary Markets, London Stock Exchange Group and Alex Mihailciuc - Head of Global Head of Pre-sales at UiPath - Robotic Process Automation.

Our fireside chat events have three segments:

18:00 - 19:00 The first hour we will serve food and drinks and help you make friends. You could say it’s networking, but we aim to make it much more than that! The Startup Grind Bucharest team will ensure your experience stands out from other events.

19:00 - 20:00 The second hour is for the interview with James & Alex and Q&A time. We call it a fireside chat for a reason - it is meant to feel like an intimate conversation. Think of it as assisted storytelling, if you will. 

20:00 - 21:00 The final hour is another chance for you to connect with each other more and to meet the speakers.
