financial innovation in romania
KOOP offers a combined set of services for diverse needs of its Romanian hub members. A member is provided with clustered services ie consultancy, mentorship, events, fintech tours, business development, API sandbox, etc. Members can also tap into cost-efficient coworking offered by Commons.
We pick our mentors upon a careful consideration of credentials. Mentorship is not a friends and family engagement. It requires true-to-life guidance, and occasionally playing the devil’s advocate.
We have automated the mentorship services towards cutting-edge platform given our mentors come from different parts of the world. Mentornity delivers a seamless user experience in booking and interviewing with mentors.
We value the support of our mentors who come from various industries and experiences. It is our hope and belief that mentors will also learn from the sessions they will hold with the mentees.
LEVERAGING THE POTENTIAL
“Fintech is a worldwide phenomenon since it has the potential to revolutionize the way financial services are provided. KOOP facilitates information exchange and capacity building towards community programs, events and innovation projects.
We encourage startups to join this large community for free and benefit from its rigorous programs and activities. We are also eager to work with corporates either as ecosystem partners or members so we can join our forces together for results-oriented innovation programs.Our main focus areas in Romania will be blockchain, open banking and insurtech.
Stay tuned and updated for our activities.”

KOOP has partnered with Commons, a leading co-working operator in Romania, to maintain the first ever physical fintech hub in the country.
Hub members enjoy an environment of fast connection, high concentration and efficient networking with rich treats at the most central location of the business world while working, at the price of a cup of coffee. For those who wish to have a company address at one of those prestigious locations, virtual office is also available providing a Hub member with contact and legal address, delivery reception and secretary services. KOOP Hub is headquartered at Common’s Bucharest offices. A big portion of Hub activities and events will take place where the Hub resides.
What is missing is a platform that connects startups, fintechs and investors. This trend has been going on in the world for a while. I am glad that it now starts in Istanbul.
KOOP is a dynamic platform that brings people together from various industries and that facilitates collaboration. I think it is awesome!
Fintech is an ever-evolving industry. The ecosystem KOOP is building will support the fintech programs significantly.
Financial and insurance technologies are fashionable today. There is a growing interest of investors towards such industries. So I find KOOP conducive and timely to enable sector players to collaborate with each other.
KOOP is making a distinctive and independent touch of building a financial innovation ecosystem and a cross-industry gateway. My favorite part is the positive and friendly approach of the KOOP team.
