About Floraria Iris: "Year 1981 marks the first step towards what we are today. On a shopping street in the historical area of ​​Bucharest, a small and elegant flower shop opens. The flowers were beautiful and fresh, and those who cared for them conquered with a family kindness more and more clients. Many of them are still with us. Flower after flower and client after client we received, in 1991, the name that we bear today - Floraria Iris. The love of our people for our flowers has led to the appearance of ten more shops and a creative workshop, considered to be one of the finest in the field of florists in Europe. I grew up every day, going from simple bouquets to real floral arrangements of the story; brides and brides, celebrities, representatives of renowned companies, representatives of the Royal House, all have crossed the threshold with excitement and joy. For our clients we have learned more and more, often by mistakes, and we have always struggled to perfect ourselves. I invested in knowledge, in the art of beauty and I freed creativity. In a short time, the fruits also appeared: notable prizes at the National and International Floral Art Contests and an international florist professor, Nicu Bocancea. [...] And history is written further, the goal is to grow this business for the third generation. " About our Host: Dani Dumitrescu is the Director of StartupGrind Bucharest.
