Romanian 24-year-old entrepreneur, Emi Gal – the founder of the Seedcamp Week 2009 winner, Brainient – was featured in Financial Times in an article written by Bob Sherwood. Financial Times presents Brainient as a forefront of an emerging trend for young, ambitious entrepreneurs from Eastern Europe countries that choose more and more often to locate their start-up in the UK.
Promising EE start-ups are coming to London
The article‘s main goal is that of proving that more and more Eastern Europe startups are turning to United Kingdom in order to help their business grow faster and to have access to London’s network of investors and advisers. Alex van Someren, UKTI global entrepreneur programme dealmaker, stated for Financial times that “there is a notable pipeline of promising start-ups coming to London from countries such as Estonia, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia, Romania and Lithuania“. The article presents UK as a financial hub having a great concentration of financial expertise and institutional investors and as a great opportunity for technology startups in Eastern Europe.
So Financial Times seems to agree that Eastern Europe’s got web talent, right?!
