MVP Academy was launched in 2014 by TechHub Bucharest. MVP Academy 2017 is the 4th batch of our acceleration program. Needless to say, we had enough time to get it right.

Startups Community Manager
Through the intellectual property and general legal advice he’s given in the past couple of years, Tudor has gained some valuable insight on what problems entrepreneurs and their projects face.
With a background in programming and law, he is now investing more time in understanding the “how”s and the “why”s, by expanding his horizons: he co-authored a couple of failed projects and a semi-profitable startup currently in pivoting mode, and he creates content and handles social media on a regular basis for This is NOT a Storm, Refuga and Digital2Law. As a Startups Community Manager at How to Web, Tudor is providing support for all the stakeholders involved in the Startup Spotlight competition.

Passionate about people and communication, Gabi started her career as a PR by volunteering in both NGOs and tech startups. Later on, she worked as a reporter for national newspapers and as a radio broadcaster.
From these experiences she learnt the dynamics of the field and she’d luck enough to become one of the journalists’ best briends: being part of the “hood”, she knows what to provide in order to get the most positive outcomes. She loves building communities and helping young talents unlock and boost their potential and, in her spare time, she enjoys reading fine literature, traveling and dancing to her favourite music.
Adriana draws her inspiration from the people who believe in their ideas and engineers them into reality. As a student in Engineering and Management, she’s always getting involved in different projects and she was
the Program Manager or IP Workshop (a summer camp for IT students). She took a step further trying to build her own startup, PillBuzz, which was part of MVP Academy Class of 2014. She’s now channelling her inner geek to manage and expand the community at TechHub Bucharest, while soaking up all the relevant knowledge in the area. Adriana loves reading, hiking, and she’s a declared coffee lover.
