Fun fact

After working as a lawyer, he created in 2007 the first and biggest Romanian online platform where entrepreneurs and NGOs could get complete and thorough information about how to access European funds and the momentum they could provide for their organizations. He is also a big fan of the Carnival in Rio. 

“Tough times forge strength and character. Today, as we face unprecedented challenges, we must remember the importance of a united Europe. We are in the midst of a war that threatens our fundamental rights and freedoms, but we must stand firm in our commitment to democracy. Let us draw strength from our past achievements and work together towards a brighter future for all Europeans.”
