Yes, I am  No one is attending yet.

Event Description

Join Spherik & the gang for an evening of discussion with Gary Whitehill and Robbert Visser about starting up and innovating–beyond hype and bullshit. A frank discussion on how we can evolve our ecosystem beyond fluff and talk, with wine, moderated by Anca Albu–person extraordinaire at large.

Gary Whitehill, nicknamed “The Sheriff” by AOL and “The Harry Potter of Global Entrepreneurship” by Globo, Gary is the only person in history to travel from continent-to-continent studying comparative entrepreneurship and innovation. Having spent time in more than 40 countries, Gary believes both are the answer to the great debate toward the way forward for all of humanity, not just the motivated entrepreneur.
As a global social reformer, serial entrepreneur, educator, and mentor, Gary advises Presidents and Prime Ministers, Fortune 100 CEO’s, economic development offices, incubators, accelerators, think tanks and entrepreneurs on both the art and science of entrepreneurship, innovation and economic development.

Robbert Visser, who has too many nicknames to list, founder of Cluj Cowork, Ruby Tribe, and more has been involved in the Cluj start-up ecosystem for years. Seldom a talker, often a do-er, Robbert has been a race-car driver and builder, a start-up founder, a mentor, a consultant, and other serious stuff. We were lucky enough to get him to join to share his insights on the direction of entreprenurship in Cluj and globally.

The event will be held in the Liberty Conference room. Tickets are free, but registration is required (we have to calculate wine needs).
