Silicon Forest Hub will be launched this June in the central area of Cluj, after an investment of EUR 200,000, hotnews.ro informs. The project provides services to the IT & C industry, as well as companies and freelancers from other business areas.
“We are in advanced discussions to host the research department of a large company in Cluj, which wants to provide the R & D team with an informal and creative working environment. We also address medium and small companies and freelancers, our goal being the development of a strong and dynamic community whose products and solutions attract as many investors as possible,” says Gabriel Rusu, one of the founders of the project.
With a modern design, the building is set on six levels, covering an area of over 1,350 sqm.
“The name of the project is not coincidental, we want to continue the tradition of the Cluj-based IT & C community, and the comparison with Silicon Valley is as justifiable as possible,” Rusu added.
He estimates an occupancy rate of 80-90 percent in the first three months of launch, although he expects a certain fluctuation of the companies that will cross hub’s threshold.
