About the session

The first office hours organised under the ‘START-UP Advantage’ partnership between EY and TechHub Bucharest, will be taking place on December 14th. It is a great opportunity for tech startups to meet with either EY specialists Horațiu Cocheci, Niclas Butan and Sergiu Sechel, which have tens of years of experience in people management, project management, accounting, financial and tax control, technology consultancy and risk consultancy.

EY has partnered with TechHub Bucharest to help Romanian tech startups in their efforts of becoming successful global businesses. We acknowledge that it can be difficult for tech startups to access quality consultancy on areas such as financials, accounting, law or project management, so the partnership is aimed at facilitating this kind of mentoring for free. The office hours session will be the first from a long series of free events and mentorship hours, that will be hosted at TechHub Bucharest, starting this December.
