Companies like DRUID, FintechOS, and FlowX are today the ambassadors of business that put Romania on the map as a fast-growing software start-up hub.
UiPath was a pioneer in letting the whole world know about the great potential of the Romanian tech ecosystem and the opportunity to invest in startups. But UiPath is not the only star. Companies like DRUID, FintechOS, and FLOWX.AI are today the ambassadors of business automatiom that put Romania on the map as a fast-growing software start-up hub.
We are happy to offer our Elite & SeedBlink Club members an investment opportunity commonly reserved for VCs and family offices: participation in DRUID's Series A round.
This Series A is backed by a high-profile group of international VCs and investors led by Karma Ventures and Hoxton Ventures. Consolidating its position from the previous round is Gapminder VC, and four other investors from Germany, Switzerland, Poland, and Romania, including co-investment platform SeedBlink.
"We want to drive digital transformation forward. The SeedBlink team has been at our side as highly competent, personally engaged, and top-notch investment managers, benefiting from a broad and qualified deal flow across Europe." said Liviu Dragan, CEO of DRUID.
Laurentiu Ghenciu, CBO SeedBlink, added that "From pre-seed to Series B stage, we provide our investors with vetted startups, deal diversification, follow-ons management, and exit support. We are excited to provide our community with access to such a competitive opportunity as DRUID.”
The team at DRUID plans to use the new capital to drive its international expansion, targeting growth in Europe and North America. The company intends to open new offices in France and Germany, by the end of 2022, and consolidate its existing presence in the UK and US. In addition, the Romanian Conversational AI start-up will prioritize human capital by increasing its global team by 60%.
SeedBlink is the fastest growing investing platform specialized in sourcing, vetting, financing, and scaling European tech start-ups.

Co-Founder & CEO
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.
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.
CEO & Co-founder
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!
