    Success Stories

#defineSchool first took place in 2015 and was created because at that time, there was no other accessible, out of the ordinary school for future tech entrepreneurs in Romania.


To create a more inclusive and opportunity-rich tech entrepreneurship ecosystem.


Tie together two groups: young people who want to learn how to build their own businesses but don’t currently have access to funding or mentors; and experienced entrepreneurs who have built companies before and want to give back

Awesome Team

Read about the amazing people behind #defineSchool. Thanks to each and every one of them, we now celebrate 10 years of startups, community, entrepreneurship, education and many more! 👏
