We define ourselves as being inclusive and we rely and focus on the 4 main pillars of a society: private sector, public sector, academic sector and NGOs. Hence, we developed Rubik Hub by implementing the quadruple helix concept:

NGO: Rubik Hub is part of the Regional Development Agency of North-East Romania, a non-profit NGO of public utility.

Public: the space itself (Rubik Hub building) was offered by the city hall of Piatra Neamt to be used at no cost.

Private: for the renovation and the repurposing of the building (it used to be a restaurant) was accomplished with the help of local sponsors – Dedeman and Dinamic’92 – who contributed with the amount of 120000 euro.

AcademicRubikEdu, our first program dedicated to students who are willing to consider entrepreneurship as a career opportunity, was accepted as a complementary pilot program in 5 universities from the North-East Region of Romania (state & private universities), within the first year of existence: Universitatea Tehnică „Gheorghe Asachi” din IaşiUNIVERSITATEA „VASILE ALECSANDRI” DIN BACĂUUniversitatea „Ştefan cel Mare” din SuceavaUniversitatea de Ştiinţe Agricole şi Medicină Veterinară “Ion Ionescu de la Brad”Universitatea “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” din Iaşi.
