Financial and legal management for startups with Andrei Rosca & Nicoleta Almaj

April comes with a twist and two important subjects for the startuppers out there: financial and legal management. RSVP and let’s meet on April 22, starting at 18:50!

 

About the speakers

Andrei Rosca lived the entrepreneurial roller-coaster since he was 17. More than enough years to realize that excels, P&Ls, cashflows are critical for a business, while keeping sane, both physically and mentally. Also, he disliked accounting since forever, so in the beginning, he searched for classes like “Financial Management for Non-Financial Managers”. That’s what the workshop is all about – a short introduction into startup financial control tools, from a person who is not an accountant, CFO or financial consultant. He is an entrepreneur sharing his experiences. Both pleasant and unpleasant.

Nicoleta Almaj is the Managing partner of Almaj, Iordache SCA, technology and energy industries-specialized law firm. She has been a business lawyer for more than 15 years, and her practice is currently focused on new technologies. Together with her colleagues, she is working on legal issues regarding transactional matters, M&A, IP, online platforms, FinTech, blockchain, complex IT contract, app development etc.

 

Event agenda

  • 18:50 – 19:00 – “Log in”
  • 19:00 – 20:00 – Track. Analyze. Change. (Andrei Rosca)

“I have an entrepreneurial DNA and in the last years, I’ve presented myself as a change strategist. Ergo, I help people change. Some run entrepreneurial organizations that also change the world. And, whether we like it or not, changing the world starts (or ends) with a P&L.”

  • 20:00 – 21:00 – Legal made easy for Tech Startups (Nicoleta Almaj)

“I propose to the Tech Startup community, an easy, palatable and business-oriented introduction to critical legal tools. The necessary tools to avoid or solve the most frequent risks that entrepreneurs encounter when developing a tech company.”

  • 21:00 – 21:10 – “Log out”

[Event canceled] March meetup: all about Kafka streams and Cassandra 4.0

Join Bucharest BigData to find out more about Kafka Streams and the newest Cassandra release. RSVP and let’s meet on March 24, starting at 18:00!

 

Event agenda

  • 18:00 – 18:30 Getting together
  • 18:30 – 19:20 Kafka Streams – a database inside out, Miron Brezai, Software Architect @ eSolutions

Kafka Streams is the easiest way to write scalable stream processing microservices. In this presentation, I will go over the architecture of Kafka Streams, will explain KStream and KTable – their differences and similarities and the local storage of Kafka Streams, how we can make joins between streams and tables and how to aggregate objects based on events grouped by id. Basically is about processing and joining infinite database tables.

  • 19:20 – 20:00 Cassandra 4.0 – What to Expect, Aleks Volochnev, Developer Advocate @ Datastax

Apache Cassandra has been a driving force for applications that scale for over 10 years. This open-source database now powers 30% of the Fortune 100. Now is your chance to get an inside look, guided by the company that’s responsible for 85% of the code commits. You won’t want to miss this deep dive into the database that has become the power behind the moment — the force behind game-changing, scalable cloud applications.
