Self-taught entrepreneur contributing to innovation growth in all areas by helping startup founders scale their businesses.

Mihnea has a wide experience in banking and finance and has acquired more than 20 years of work in structured finance & investment banking, focusing on solutions aiming at boosting client growth.

He started as a business and finance journalist supporting himself through university, naturally switching afterwards to ING, where his last position was Head of Structured Finance. Mihnea’s expertise led him to EBRD, where he covered energy project finance until 2015.  Until the end of 2020 he was the Deputy Head of EBRD in Romania, being strongly focused on business development, policy dialogue and people management.

The decision to join Endeavor came as an intense desire to contribute more to the business ecosystem, by providing added value through his extensive experience and with a strong motivation to encourage the local entrepreneurs to dare to dream for more and help them scale up their business.
