The IQ DIGITAL concept was thought up by the Upgrade 100 team together with George – a BCR innovation, as an informative and educational hybrid media format, with content that combines digital culture with techniques from television, intended to help solve the challenges encountered in digitization processes with faced by entrepreneurs in the SME sector in Romania.

“IQ DIGITAL is a remarkable concept from several points of view: it’s the first time that a major company, the size of BCR, gets involved not just as a partner, but as a real co-producer from the very beginning, and it’s the first time that a project of this kind leaves Bucharest and heads towards the big cities of the country. It is also the first time that we have a complex hybrid media concept on the market: online, TV, digital publishing, events and in the future, probably, with other variations. It’s not just an event. The fact that from this third edition we also have Vodafone as a tech partner gives us hope that we will build around IQ DIGITAL many things of value for the entrepreneurial environment passionate about technology, in the long term, together with great partners who share the vision and values ​​that we promote them. The reactions of the target audience encourage us: we are on the right track”, he declared Dragoș Stanca, founder of the Upgrade 100 platform and organizer of the former international festival iCEE.fest.
