After I have developed a strong interest in innovation and entrepreneurship in Amsterdam, I have been thinking that there is enormous potential of developing these in my home country. With the big dream and ambition to create a positive impact in Moldova, I have decided to develop a community of like-minded people, determined to be part of a positive change.
This is how Co-Labs started- an innovation consultancy aiming to grow a culture of innovation and develop the creative sector in the Republic of Moldova. During this venture I have mainly focused on building a community through social media and content creation, and event organisation.

Farm Hack Lean Startup Event
FarmHack was a 2-day event that brought together students, entrepreneurs, farmers and IT specialists to explore the problems and opportunities of Moldovan agriculture. Through an intense program of presentations, workshops and teamwork, the participants have managed to identify pain areas, validate customer problems and come up with creative, scalable solutions.
Together with a team of three, we have organized and facilitated the event, combining the lean startup methodology with the design sprint and design thinking, We ended up with 5 teams presenting their concepts and prototypes, and one of the teams went further applying for “Rockstart Launchtrack Moldova” accelerator program.
