We believe in a world full of genuine and passionate people that care about Romania. We believe in a world where friends, communities, change-makers, and organizations come together to make the world a better place. We believe that our kids will one day live in a strong, connected, impactful Romanian Diaspora. We believe in Changing the World, One Romanian at a Time.

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Yes, we are shooting for the moon. We want to be the Tesla or the Apple of the Romanian Diaspora: ground-breaking, cutting edge, avant-garde! A 21st-century, technology-backed umbrella organization, rooted in strong partnerships, personal friendships, and trust.
But the you know what? The most important thing about Apple and Tesla is that people who love them never leave. We want to be that special to you. Have we convinced you yet?
