By Cristina Burca, ICN Journalist, Romania
Born2Succeed is not only a successful business consultancy in Romania, but also the mind-set of an emerging entrepreneurial community which brings Romania in the spotlight of the global start-up scene. With almost 300 start-ups and more than 500 founders in only the last two years (listed on RomanianStartups.com), Romania is already seen as a vibrant and ever-growing global start-up hub. More, Romania ranks 5th in the world at internet connection speed and 38th as to starting up a business. Clear signs that business coaching has a huge potential to develop.
Irina Alionte, one of the youngest entrepreneurs and business coaches in Romania, grew a worldwide consulting business – Born2Succeed – in less than a year, whose figures speak for themselves: 25 live events for entrepreneurs in 2014, international speakers, a fully-booked list of 1-to-1 coaching sessions and an innovative Bodyshape transformation centre. And that’s only the beginning. As the Romanian market has a lot more to show.
ICN spoke with Irina about coaching trends in Romania, how to create a successful business in record speed, avoid failure and enjoy a “freedom” lifestyle.
