On February 24, 2016, Innovation Venture Days, the launching event for the third edition of RICAP, gathered some of the most promising Romanian technology innovation companies, selected to be part of the program, as well as key players in the technology sector, entrepreneurs and investors from Romania and the United States.

RAF has been the main investor in RICAP since its inception in 2013.
The program supports tech entrepreneurs boost their businesses, offering training and mentorship from experts in Romania and the Unites States, as well as access to international expertise to test and validate a new technology’s global potential. RICAP has laid the foundation for a local how-to network, which allows for the growth of the national innovation ecosystem. With the support of RICAP, both the companies and their novel technologies have become more sophisticated, covering specific needs while gaining a better understanding of the market requirements.

This year’s novelty consists in the development of two new components: RICAP Academy, which will help the selected 15 companies validate their technologies and boost their potential, and RICAP Accelerator, which will work with and support 3 selected companies to grow faster and access the international market.

RICAP is implemented by Centrul Român pentru Inovație în Dezvoltarea Locală (CRIDL) in partnership with Larta Institute, with the support of GEA Strategy & Consulting.
