Adrian Gheara is founder of Neobyte Solutions and an active angel investor. He is an IoT and robotics enthusiast and is looking for open-minded teams in Romania.

About me.

  • Adrian is involved in:
  • 123ContactForm - service for online forms
  • East-Tec - security software
  • AXOSuits - a robotics company developing an exoskeleton suit
  • NeobyteSolutions - a web & mobile design and development agency
  • VinSiEu - a local community website for events announcement

I earned my first money with...
selling a cryptography programme I wrote back in high-school.

If I wouldn't be an investor I would be...
an entrepreneur working on my own startup (read more on how Adrian Gheara became an Angel Investor here).

I get annoyed when...
I meet people who think they know everything.

My favourite movie is...
Star Trek 

About passion and profession.

My investment fund is focused on startups in...
the region of Romania and the area of IoT and Robotics.

The investment plan for the next years is...
to invest in one startup per year. Quality before quantity.

Our business relationship with startups is characterised by...
a very hands-on approach in building the product and business. 

Besides money I offer...
mentoring and helping the founders not only on a strategic level, but also with the actual tactics and introductions to the right persons and contractors.

About working with startups.

In a startup I am looking for...
a very good product, with a lot of potential. I am interested only in SaaS, IoT and Robotics.

Characteristics a founder team should have are...
They should be open-minded, should be willing to learn and to improve themselves. Also, the team should consist of at least two, one should be technical the other business-oriented.

I was most impressed by...
modesty, even from very successful entrepreneurs

I was least impressed by...
arrogance...

You get most out of relationship with me when...
you want and need a mentor.
