Our National Leads for Moldova

Meet Maria and Valeria, our National Leads for Moldova!

Maria

What is your background?

I gained professional experience both in private and social sector – recruitment coordinator in one of the leading ITC Company in Moldova, and vice-president in a youth-driven international organization. Currently involved fully in non-governmental sector working as a project manager for a cause and specifically on tackling climate change.

Why did you become a country lead?

I see ClimateLaunchpad as an outstanding and smart way to create effective experience and bring immediate positive results for both entrepreneurs, society and environment as well. It is a win-win situation. The idea to contribute directly to make this happen made me to become a country lead.

Why do you think this competition is so important?

Green economy in the context of sustainable development is a “hot” topic now and a pathway to foster it is by supporting innovation among existing or future entrepreneurs, and enable Eco-friendly ideas to become commercialized products. This competition has a great potential to do so.

How does your organisation support cleantech start-ups?

EcoVisio supports emerging cleantech entrepreneurs in Moldova through capacity building and coaching as well as network development and promotion, for example through yearly fair of Environmental Opportunities and Social Entrepreneurship “IarmarEco”.

Valeria

What is your background?

I’ve studied Environment and Economics and worked in R&D and as an international trainer. As head of EcoVisio one of my main roles is running a program on social business for youth.

Why did you become a country lead?

I want to help channel the creative potential of Moldovan people into initiatives and businesses with social and environmental impact. ClimateLaunchpad contributes to our vision of a sustainable Europe.

Why do you think this competition is so important?

ClimateLaunchpad helps entrepreneurs concentrate on their cleantech idea and in a very short time boost it up to a much higher level of competence.

How does your organisation support cleantech start-ups?

In 2014 we’ve launched a Social Entrepreneurship Educational program “activEco – sustainability in action”. Eco-village Moldova serves as an experimental lab for clean technologies like eco-construction, energy efficiency, renewables, etc.
