Evenings with Entrepreneurs "Evenings with Entrepreneurs" is a unique project, run by JCI Moldova exclusively for the young entrepreneurs - members of the organization. The project aims to create opportunities for JCI members to interact with successful entrepreneurs from Moldova.
Silvia Radu – the host of the First Evening with Entrepreneurs The First Evening with Entrepreneurs took place on December 8, 2011 at the „Red Union Fenosa” Company. The participants had the unique and the fascinating opportunity to learn from the experience of a successful lady – Mrs. Silvia Radu, who is now the president of “Red Union Fenosa” – a company that has more than 1000 employees and generates sales that are bigger than the entire budget of our capital. During this meeting, the participants also made a trip through the entreprise, and had the opportunity to communicate with the employees and to compare the soviet dispatchers with the current management system of the company.
Alexandra Can – the director with 600 employees Mrs. Alexandra Can – the director of the leather goods factory „Artima” was also very receptive to our invitation. In a few years of directorate, Mrs. Alexandra brought the business to it’s full capacity and paid back all the company’s debts; and now she is proud for administrating a company that is one of the major contributors to the budget of our country. She spoke to us with a lot of dedication about the company, and about her career ascension: from bookkeeper and public servant, to director of an enterprise and Minister of Industry. Mrs Alexandra conquered us through it’s simplicity, and with the pieces of advises she gave to us.
Gheorghe Efros – the director of the company „ProEra” Mr. Georghe Efros – the director of the consulting and training company “ProEra”, was the third and the last entrepreneur with which JCI Chișinău members had interacted in the 2011 year.
