Simplified registration for entrepreneurs in the Made in Romania community

8/26/2021

The Made in Romania platform, developed by the Bucharest Stock Exchange and available at www.investingromania.com, offers a simplified registration for companies, following the import of public data from the Termene.ro platform. Thus, when filling in a company's profile and entering the Unique Identification Code, all the public data required for registration in the Made in Romania community are automatically retrieved. The new functionality is implemented with the support of Termene.ro, a platform that provides real-time updated information about companies in Romania.

‘Through the Made in Romania program, the Bucharest Stock Exchange shows its dedication and commitment to building a strong business environment. The results of the Made in Romania editions in recent years, as well as the increasing openness of entrepreneurial companies to the capital market, show us that we are on the right track. The partnership with Termene.ro validates our direction towards digitization and transformation of the stock exchange into a flexible and easy-to-access product both to entrepreneurial teams seeking financing and to investors’, said Adrian Tanase,  Bucharest Stock Exchange CEO.

‘More than 300 companies joined the Made in Romania program this year. They are all predictable businesses that are growing using the business intelligence and information tools available on Termene.ro. As an entrepreneur, I am glad that by using our platform we can validate the Romanian businesses enrolled in the BVB program, companies active in key areas such as IT&C, services, agriculture, health, home & deco and construction’, said Adrian Dragomir, Termene.ro founder.

The registration of a company on the Made in Romania platform is a 24/7 service and offers the possibility to connect companies with stock exchange brokers, business angels, venture capital, private equity or banks. The public data automatically retrieved when entering the Unique Identification Code includes turnover and profits/losses for the last three reported years, equity and number of employees for the last reported year and, last but not least, the shareholding structure, i.e. the percentages held by resident/non-resident individuals/legal entities.

The Made in Romania platform was launched in April 2021 with the 4th edition of the Made in Romania program. Currently, 114 company profile accounts, 45 consultant profile accounts and 91 investor profile accounts are registered on the platform. Companies that register to be part of the Made in Romania community have the opportunity to get in contact with investors and to participate in a mentoring program, organized by the Bucharest Stock Exchange with its partners (the exact date is to be announced).

The 4th edition of the Made in Romania program is in full swing. The 50 semi-finalists were announced at the beginning of August and the public can vote for one of them until 31 August. The company that receives the biggest number of public votes will become the first finalist. The other 14 finalists will be decided on 1 September by a jury of experts in various economic fields, appointed by the Bucharest Stock Exchange and its project partners. This year's finalists will be made public at the Awards Gala scheduled for September 2021. The 50 semi-finalist companies were selected from all the applications received (318 companies), by the Nomination Committee members.

Termene.ro is a fully automated platform on which users have direct access to information from 15+ official and updated real-time sources on the financial and legal data of Romanian companies. Founded in 2014, Termene.ro is used by more than 70,000 companies, helping them to identify on time business opportunities and correctly assess risks using market analysis, reports and statistics that can be customized. Customer portfolio monitoring is another important feature.
