Episode 162: Ecosystem Zoom In – The Romanian Case

Our Euro trip is far from being over and this week – we landed in Romania! We know what you are thinking, natural landscapes and multiple UNESCO sites, yes… but financial services and industry innovation? Well, we’ll have you know that Revolut has more than 2.5 million users in Romania – the second market after the United Kingdom; with incredible numbers evolving around the nurturing of tech talent – but hey, it’s time to press pay, and get to know the Romanian ecosystem!
