For Mark Shuttleworth, his journey into the tech scene has been fulminant even from the beginning and also paved with a lot of success that few can count as their own. Because he will be one of the keynote speakers for the Techsylvania conference this year and also because his professional and personal life are something to look up to, let us pinpoint some of this achievements that made us so eager to know him.
“The Central and Eastern European region has become a major IT hub, spurring the international expansion of successful technology start-ups, particularly from Romania.

This is probably one of the most important blogposts related to this Techsylvania edition. Not only that we have a tendency to save the best for last, but specially because this article summarises hundreds of days of hard work, commitment and hope to get Techsylvania on fresh and prosperous grounds.
It’s also about all the support that we have received so far to successfully launch a new and better edition each year. Reputable speakers that have never visited Romania before, valuable partners that have decided to join us for the second or even third time in a row, courted startups from across the globe—you name it, we have received an enormous boost and we couldn’t be more glad about it.
The only thing that’s on top of our minds right now is to deliver what we have promised: Techsylvania as a leading tech event in Eastern Europe. But we surely need your help to conquer this title. And how can you do it? By joining us on the 21-24th of May, at Students’ Culture Hall in Cluj-Napoca, of course!

Maybe you have wondered in the last few days if joining Techsylvania is really something that will help you learn, access and see new things in your area of interest.

Therefore, if you are an entrepreneur, an innovator or a developer, read further to find out what Techsylvania can do for you!

There are less than 3 weeks until Techsylvania and we have recently confirmed a new name on the speaker`s list – Tim Draper. But let`s not prolong the excitement and introduce him to you properly, as you might want to know what this fuss is all about.
Nowadays, business development and innovation go hand in hand while the old saying of resting on one`s laurels is long taken into account. Especially in the tech field, where constant renewal and generation of solutions is a determining factor of a company`s survival.
