On November 28th, Ruxanda Barba, the FLEX Alumni Coordinator held the first ever Speed Networking event in Chisinau. Much like Speed Dating, the event format is constructed in such way that all participants have a chance to talk to everyone present. The goal is to get to meet all attendees and learn about their projects.
The list of invited people included several FLEX alumni, among which 4 City Reps, Erica Ceka - Executive Director at Association for Women's Entrepreneurial Development "Success", Dan Prisacaru - a small wine producer, Elena Scutaru - the founder of the Mara Woman social project aimed at employing jobless women from the town of Scoreni, Alecsandra Serediuc - the leader of "Clepsidra" community service project aimed at fundraising for children living in orphanages from the regions, Dorin Hamuraru (FLEX ‘09) who is currently working the production of the Moldovan movie called ‘100 de Movile'/ '100 Risings', Irina Dubinschi - the organizer of the KoolTour Exchange, and many other active and inspiring youngsters.
The event was held in a relaxed atmosphere where participants could enjoy each other's company, have a cup of tea, find a project to volunteer for or find partners for theirs. Many new ideas arose and many new connections were made as a result of the Speed Networking event. Watching the success of the event, Ruxanda promised to surely have a follow-up, which would potentially bring more of the active youth together.
