A business journalist with over 10 years of experience (covering entrepreneurship, management and investments in Romania), Cristina aims to empower entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams. She has graduated the School of Journalism and started business writing, in her first year as a student. Five years ago, she decided to do more for entrepreneurs than write articles. So she quit her job, launched startups.ro and started to build online and offline projects meant to help entrepreneurs start and grow their own company. She believes in the power of entrepreneurial education and she’s planning to develop a program that teaches kids how to take control of their own lives, make decisions and build for themselves all the nice things they dream of. Children with entrepreneurial skills will become adults focused on building things for themselves, not waiting for things to happen, and that’s the only Cristina thinks we can move forward. She is passionate about cross-cultural learning and she is planning her third trip to China. She loves gardening and has over 200 different rose bushes.
