Many times we’re asked which are the organisations active in the startup field in Cluj. Sometimes it’s about investment, some other times about startup-support programs or about various communities or services. 

Three weeks ago, together with Activize.Tech, we started making this list/map; there were around 15 organisations/events at the beginning being focused just on startups. But then we realised that there are plenty more with a larger focus while part of their activities are related to supporting tech startups.

This map and list will be updated constantly. It’s possible that we forgot some organisations/projects so just drop us an email at and we’re going to update the list right away, after we understand what the organisation (or project/event) focuses on. 

You can see the “map” below and complete list with link towards each organisation/event (full image link here )
