SeedBlink recruits Cristian Bornoiu, a manager with over 20 years of experience in the stock market, as Compliance and Risk Director

Cristian Bornoiu's background includes a deep understanding of specific laws related to consumer protection, personal data processing, prevention, and anti-money laundering.


Bucharest, April 12th: SeedBlink, the European co-investment platform in tech startups, has announced the recruitment of Cristian Bornoiu, as the new Compliance and Risk Director. With over 20 years of experience in similar roles at the Bucharest Stock Exchange and the Rasdaq Stock Exchange, the new manager will ensure that SeedBlink remains compliant with all relevant regulations and manages any potential risks to the company.

Cristian Bornoiu's background includes a deep understanding of specific laws related to consumer protection, personal data processing, prevention, and anti-money laundering.

"We are thrilled to have Cristian join our team. His extensive experience in compliance and risk management is a great asset to SeedBlink, especially after receiving the European Crowdfunding Service Provider Regulation licence, as we continue to grow and expand our business across Europe at the same time to protect our investors. We look forward to working with him to ensure that we maintain the highest standards of compliance and risk management”, said Carmen Sebe, CEO SeedBlink.

"I'm honored to be part of an international company like SeedBlink, an agile player with exciting upcoming projects in the local and European markets. I'll leverage my compliance and risk management expertise to ensure Seedblink is a top company in the crowdfunding industry. With the team's extensive experience, we're committed to delivering top-notch services and exceptional client experiences”, stated Cristian Bornoiu, Compliance and Risk Director SeedBlink.

SeedBlink enables investors to safely co-invest across borders in a thoroughly curated list of tech startups with a European DNA, together with a strong network of venture capital partners. Individuals can participate with as little as €2,500

"The ECSPR license is an important milestone in our European expansion and provides investors and us with a clear framework. Allowing investment capital to flow more freely and smoothly to innovation across Europe as a single global market can dramatically increase Europe's competitiveness as a whole. SeedBlink is proud to support this common goal”, added Carmen Sebe, CEO of SeedBlink.

Under the ECSPR license and the passport from ESMA, SeedBlink was allowed to set up a secondary market where investors can have more control over their portfolio through bulletin boards where buyers and sellers can find each other. In March, SeedBlink launched the Secondary Market, addressing a significant concern of startup investors: liquidity.

As a startup founder, I am happy to witness SeedBlink’s dedication to expanding their support for early-stage companies beyond funding, towards a healthy equity management via Nimity. A solution to help better navigate relations with stakeholders, employees and future investors is needed in Europe. Less admin work and bringing transparency to the cap table are immediate benefits I was able to test.

SeedBlink is a transparent solution that connects entrepreneurs with great business plans, with investors, at different stages in their development. It is a great tool for us, a democratization of access to funding, I would say.

We really loved the SeedBlink journey. We reached our fundraising goal within hours of launching. About 100 investors joined our vision and invested almost $2 million in FLOWX.AI through the Private Deal Room. At the same time, working with SeedBlink to prepare for the funding round was an excellent exercise for our entire team, and we received and felt the support from the SeedBlink team members who took on an advisory role.

SeedBlink made the (investment) process run smoothly. We appreciate all the support SeedBlink's professional team has provided.

It's important to look for and choose a platform that you resonate with, that shares your mission with, a platform & its people with which you feel you can have good working relationships. we got an excellent relationship going forward; we talked a lot and we were in touch on a lot of matters and I think this was important. Having people who believe in your idea is of great help.

Running the financing round was like any other fundraising; we had to be active in our community as well as in SeedBlink's investor community. After the launch, everything happened very quickly, and SeedBlink organized several pitch events for investors, which we found very useful for the round momentum.


Svilen Rangelov

We immediately clicked with the SeedBlink team as their fundraising expertise was immediately obvious and their no-nonsense approach really appealed to us. After all, fundraising is only a means to an end, and we liked how the SeedBlink team was really focusing on supporting us and on getting things done.


Mihai Darzan



Our main expectation has been to raise the amount we were aiming for, and both rounds launched on Seedblink exceeded our targets, so we’re very happy with that! Even though the launched funding campaigns have been purely crowdfunding rounds, we are thrilled to actually receive extra support from some of the investors, who have chosen to get involved and help us generate product awareness, whenever they can.

I am recommending SeedBlink without hesitation, to every founder that raises capital, especially early-stage tech startups. SeedBlink is a crowd investment platform that will also provide their startup with visibility, for Angels and VCs.


Dragoș Iliescu

Founder and CEO


In the early stages, we have been funded by several early (angel) investors, and one and a half year ago through an equity crowdfunding campaign on SeedBlink. Of course, this impacted our growth in many positive ways, partly due to the cash influx that, evidently, was sorely needed, but in a larger part due to the fact that our responsibility towards our shareholders has become more stringent and explicit, becoming embodied in our market approach.


Costin Tudor

Co-founder and CEO


Given the accelerated growth we observed at the end of last year and the beginning of 2021, we want a new capitalization, quickly. This is a bridge round that we will use for one year, and the advantages that SeedBlink offers are the speed at which we were able to list for financing and the experience that we gain as a result of this public listing, similar to a listing on the stock exchange.


Diwaker Singh

As a platform that only serves technology ventures, SeedBlink can connect the start-up with more than just money. SeedBlink investors are primarily technocrats who understand the objectives of the fundraising company and are also able to post-funding contribute with business opportunities. The minimum investment threshold, and technology focus, differentiates SeedBlink from other fundraising platforms. A perfect fit for a technology start-up seeking intelligent funding.


Florin Stoian

Co-Founder & CEO


SeedBlink boosted our brand exposure and facilitated the financial support we were seeking. Having a campaign on the platform allowed us not only to meet a team of professionals - that guided and helped us prepare the necessary materials - but also opened doors for increasing our brand awareness and have discussions with VCs & angel investors we have never reached before. This campaign gave us the encouragement we needed to push the product further, while the record-breaking fundraising (only 2 hours from the launch of the campaign!) was a great confirmation that our product is needed in this market and that we should continue innovating.

SeedBlink has created a vital ecosystem for startups at the beginning of their journey by equipping entrepreneurs with expertise, encouraging honest and sometimes uncomfortable but necessary discussions about risks and vulnerabilities through a suite of tools, and facilitating connections with investors who share the founders' vision and can contribute to their success. I have greatly appreciated the constant support of Eric and the entire team at all stages of the campaign. Thank you so much!
