We are continuing our interviews with another Silver Partner for this year’s edition of Techsylvania, Eloquentix. Radu Roşu is the CEO and was kind enough to answer a few questions we had for him.
But first, let me tell you a little bit about his background.
Learning to spend thriftily.
Radu emigrated with his family to the United States in 1986. Emigration forces you to be resourceful. You may be doctor or a professor like Radu’s parents were, but when you get to the States, you start from zero. All you have is you. Your education, your traditions, your ethics. The smart thing to do in the new location is to learn the strengths it has and integrate them in your life. The next step is taking what you have learned and spreading that knowledge in a sustainable, scalable manner.
Tech events can be one of the most powerful learning venues for your career and your startup. There is, however, a caveat. You have to know how to get your money’s worth. This involves getting into the right mindset BEFORE the event.
1) Define What You Want
If you don’t have a focus, you won’t know what to look for and your money won’t be well spent. Have intent when you attend Techsylvania 2015. Are you looking for a completely new marketing strategy for your latest development? Is there a specific speaker whom you want to check out because of their expertise in coding? Define what you want to gain the most from attending and begin preparing.
Last year’s Techsylvania event was definitely a blast. The Hackathon contestants were very promising and the conference itself was filled to the brim with interesting information. No need to worry if you missed last year’s event, because we’re organizing another one this year, between the 6th and 9th of June. We’ve got a ton of great speakers coming to Techsylvania and the Hackathon is guaranteed to be even more entertaining than last year.
So it all comes down to one thing. Why should you be interested in attending this year’s event? Well, for one thing, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth. If this alone doesn’t convince you, then see what other benefits await you:
