Bogdan Padiu - Ymens

I want to transform society through technology so I set up Romania’s first and only cloud broker. We offer business solutions in the cloud via a platform that acts like a one-stop-shop for both businesses and public bodies. Our platform stands out because our customers can choose from a wide range of cloud applications and business services, whether IT outsourcing, security or maintenance support, according to their needs. Our challenge is to continue to educate the SME market on the benefits of cloud technology because the potential is huge.

If I were in charge of SME growth, I would make it easier and cheaper for them to pay their taxes; I would increase European funding for developing cloud solutions and make it easier to access that funding; and I would ensure that SMEs have equal access to government procurement markets.
