„ We have reached the fifth edition of the Made in Romania program, and we see, once again, companies from industries that are developing strongly in our country, harmonizing with the structure of our economy. Thus, companies from the IT&C sector have the largest share, a performance we also saw in the previous edition, followed by those from the consumer goods area and those from the manufacturing industry. All these companies inspire us with their determination and ability to respond to challenges with optimism and turn them into development opportunities. We see companies with a history of over 30 years, being a model of resilience and continuous adaptation to consumer needs, but also companies that have been on the market for only a few years and already stand out in their field. With each new edition in which we meet the semifinalists and then the finalists of the Made in Romania project, we discover successful Romanian entrepreneurial stories that we are proud of. We are happy to provide the platform where they can promote themselves and access strategies to help them grow.” said Radu Hanga, President of the Bucharest Stock Exchange.

“We have reached this significant stage of the Made in Romania project, strengthening the entrepreneurs’ community formed around the program from both leading companies with tradition on the capital market, as well as companies at the beginning of the journey, with the potential to become a benchmark in the Romanian economy. This edition brought to the forefront the 15 Made in Romania stories that stood out through the innovation they bring to their activity field, the business dynamics, and the constant efforts they make to become the Romanian economy drivers. In the list of the finalists, we see diversity and ambitious growth plans, reflecting the Romanian entrepreneurial spirit. Every company is unique, and we are glad to be able to give them this platform to tell their story. We congratulate them and wish them success”. said Adrian Tanase, CEO of the Bucharest Stock Exchange.

By developing the platform it has positioned the Bucharest Stock Exchange as the main financing channel for Romania entrepreneurs. At the same time, the platform is also aimed at investors, consultants, and especially companies with growth prospects seeking financing from investors, or companies in the process of preparing a private placement on the AeRO or Main Market.
