The Informal School of IT is the largest platform in Romania that brings together industry leading professionals with talented people driven by a desire to develop their unique IT skills. It was co-founded by Sebastian Văduva along with several partners from Cluj-Napoca, in 2013. The idea came after having several corporate training sessions with large IT companies that complained about having less and less time to invest in in-house technical trainings… The school rapidly expanded from Cluj-Napoca to Bucharest, Timisoara, Iasi and even Oradea, for one year and a half. The company’s hands-on approach, combined with a permanently updated curricula and convenient timeframe proved to be a successful recipe for it’s alternative school.

In 2011, while Sebastian Văduva was the Dean of Griffiths School of Management he was challenged by a US business owner to create Stark Vantage, a company specialized in IT administration, telemarketing, as well as finance and accounting for the US market. He gathered eight graduates among which there was Bogdan Negru, who later became the CEO of the Romanian company. The scale of the activity increased steadily in 2012 and by 2013 it took on the name of Stark Europe, becoming the European branch for Stark Talent, a leading staffing and recruiting company in the United States. Over the time, the team gained knowledge and expertise in back office processes, finance, IT administration, recruiting and order management. After four years of strengthening its foundation, 2014 was the perfect timing for Stark Vantage to consolidate its client base and ramp up its efforts extensively in Europe, the United States and the Middle East, as the company changed its name. In 2017, the company rebranded itself to Sourcematch, as Bogdan Negru moved to the US to boost sales for the company.
