The moon keeps changing quarters, and so do we! 
Yes, it is the time for our quarterly howling wrap-up: 2020 has been a challenge for everyone, and at Wolfpack Digital we've been extremely grateful to have a healthy and constant growth pace even during a pandemic! 

Here’s a recap of our third quarter of 2020 ๐Ÿ‘‡

announcements and milestones

The entire pack is over the moon to announce that this summer we earned 3 awards, 1 certification, 28 active projects, and an amazing 40 under 40 feature of Gina Lupu, the founder & CEO of Wolfpack Digital:

trendsetters and mentors

  • StartITup invited Gina Lupu to be part of the mentoring team ๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿซ
  • How to Web Startup Spotlight invited Corina Stirbu to be part of the mentoring team for the 40 selected startups ๐Ÿ”ฆ
  • Innovation Labs was part of our quarterly journey once again both as Silver Partners and as part of the mentoring & jurying with Gina Lupu and Corina Stirbu ๐Ÿš€
  • We love nature, as you know by now (we even have a site for this called Wolfpack Loves Nature) and we also supported Clujul Verde as a sponsor and continued our green initiative actions ๐ŸŒณ
  • We supported Help Autism this quarter once again๐ŸŽ—
  • Techsylvania was hosted in the virtual world this year, but we are partners for good no matter what! So we joined the event as Bronze Partner for 3rd year in a row and it went great!
  • We organized a hybrid satellite event: Fintech & Ruby on Rails for all the startupers and Ruby on Rails enthusiasts to get together for an outdoor networking event to discuss the Reactive components: Vue vs. Rails and the perks of using Ruby on Rails to build digital solutions.
    Our special guest, Edgar de Picciotto, Co-founder of Ikigai – a London-based startup revolutionizing the banking and investment services, virtually joined us to share his journey of building a Fintech application and answered all the questions from our broadcasting viewers and people joining us offline.

Wolfpack Digital is taking all the measures to keep the entire team and all partners safe in the pandemic and most of our work was remote, people joining us in the office were under careful monitoring and ensuring proper distancing, masks, sanitizers, and everything needed to be in a safe environment.
