This spring, Cluj-Napoca will host one of the biggest competition for startups in the region. The contest, called Startup Avalanche will be part of the agenda of Techsylvania conference, which will take place from the 21st until the 24th of May in Cluj-Napoca.

Startup Avalanche is a startup competition and in the same time a platform through which the new players on the IT local and international market can access investments, recognition and resources. Moreover, Startup Avalanche`s best pitch is rewarded with a trip to Silicon Valley.

Startups will be signed into the competition until the 17th of April and only the best 20 pitches will get to present their business on the stage. The competition is organised by Techsylvania in partnership with Spherik Accelerator and this year is the first edition.


Startup Avalanche is just a part of what participants can experience at Techsylvania. The conference is about to bring this year more than 1000 participants, over 40 speakers and 20 gadgets.

Vlad Ciurca, one of the main organisers of both Techsylvania and Startup Avalanche, tells us about the competition:

Startup Avalanche is a way through which we want to help new businesses to accelerate their growth. We believe that by getting them into contact with investors, new ideas and large public, they can develop at a faster pace. Moreover, we are glad to have Spherik Accelerator as partners, as we feel their complementary set of knowledge can really weigh in to this competitions` success.

We are a partner of the Techsylvania conference and our newsletter subscribers can get a 15% discount on all tickets.
