2018 Edition

 

Companies interest in Made in Romania project was significantly higher in the second edition, so 201 companies were registered in the project at the end of the nomination (15 January – 16 February), 20% more than in the first edition. This success could not be achieved without the help of the members of the Nomination Committee, the Jury, the partners, but especially the companies that entered the first edition of the BVB League and who were ambassadors of Made in Romania.

Out of the 201 registered companies, the Bucharest Stock Exchange together with the Nomination Committee, consisting of 12 experts from various branches of the economy and well anchored in the local economy, chose 50 semifinalists. It has been hard work, decisions have been made difficult because each company has a unique story, even if some of them work in the same field.

In the next stage of the project, the relay was handed over to the Jury, who was given the difficult task of selecting only 14 companies to enter the BVB League. The 15th company was selected by public vote. The voting session took place from March 19 to April 3, at which time 42,540 votes were registered on www.bvbleague.ro, almost four times more votes than in the first edition of the Made in Romania project, from 2017. The final list of the 15 companies was officially announced on April 25, 2017, at the Made in Romania Gala.

Between May and November, finalists and the other 35 semi-finalists had the opportunity to benefit from a special program dedicated to supporting long-term business development, covering topics such as marketing and branding, strategy and innovation, audit and development financing.

During the two weeks of the application submission period, we received 166 nominations. Out of the 166 only 50 companies entered the short list of BVB and the members of the Nomination Committee in March 2017, and until the end of the month, the Jury – consisting of 12 local and international experts, selected 15 finalists. The final list of the 15 companies was officially announced on April 3, 2017, within the dedicated Gala Premiere.

Between May and November 2017, the Bucharest Stock Exchange together with its partners has organized a number of top quality workshops and seminars dedicated to all 50 companies that entered the shortlist.
