A dynamic environment
Inaugurated in December 2013, Liberty Technology Park Cluj integrates all the necessary elements for an effervescent business environment. Everything from state of the art office spaces to the complete set of facilities, alongside an event venue and a multifunctional sport terrain, Liberty Technology Park Cluj offers all the essential components so that both residents and occasional visitors will benefit from the best experience within the park.
his initiative that transformed a former industrial platform in a true technological park had a positive impact on the local business environment. The project revitalized from an architectural point of view the former industrial area but it also succeeded in creating a thriving environment for both emerging and existing businesses. Currently, the park is host to seven large and medium companies (Siemens, Halcyon Mobile, Recall Information Services, Control Data Systems, KPMG, Makronetz and Tulemod), its’ very own business accelerator – Spherik, a design studio – Ecuson Studio, the restaurant La Casa and Liberty Fitness.
Spherik Accelerator is a platform meant to help, to grow and to create thriving businesses, a platform designed for developing and implementing business both locally and internationally. The accelerator offers the perfect habitat in which investors, mentors, specialists and young professionals passionate about technology and entrepreneurship are reunited. Their first program is currently undergoing, helping 5 teams to launch their projects. „Fotocolaj” is one of the first projects already launched that benefit from Spherik’s help and the „Primul doctor” app will be launched this March, being the first startup developed and grown with the help of Spherik’s team.
„Our efforts are paying off, the results can be observed month by month. The park is constantly evolving, not only architecturally or in terms of facilities offered, but also from our residents’ point of view that are evolving step by step with us. Since we opened we contributed, alongside our residents, to the creation of over 500 new job opportunities.” – Ion Sturza, Chairman Fribourg Capital
