In your startup journey, your idea keeps you up at night, educates persistence, and develops resilience. The struggle it brings will shape your character and take you further, regardless of the outcome. Always remember, that you are here for something much more important than just revenue. Keep fighting for what you believe in and know that there are people in our government and in our country, ready to assist you. We are working on bettering the funding schemes available, and we on increasing our support to tech startups. Thank you for doing this and keep up the fight!Dumitru Alaiba, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economic Development and Digitization of the Republic of Moldova
