The event was organized under the theme “Barriers and Solutions in the Romanian ecosystem for alternative finance”. I took place on February 25, 2020, in Bucharest, and it brought together relevant stakeholders and alternative finance providers with the goal of mapping the barriers for alternative finance, faced by the Romanian ecosystem, and find innovative ways of developing alternative financing (AF).

Alternative financing (AF) for businesses across Europe has increased considerably in recent years, becoming an important source of finance for entrepreneurs, startups, and SMEs. However, access to AF varies considerably across Europe with Southern, Central and Eastern European regions lagging behind Northern and Western European regions in terms of AF volume (total and per capita). To bridge this gap, Altfinator will facilitate the transfer of best practices from more advanced to less advanced markets.
