A country’s economy largely depends on the number of new companies created each year. The entrepreneur is a person who has an important role in the creation of new businesses, and for this he must know all the pros and cons of launching a new product or service in the market and need to know how to choose the best business partners. To help entrepreneurs meet and exchange ideas with other entrepreneurs, to help them find potential investors in various business ideas or just to help them see how other people think, were set up business speed- dating in the event called Business Networking, which took place in Oradea city. This paper presents the result of a questionnaire that we applied on a number of thirty entrepreneurs that participated at the speed-dating meetings from Bihor County and the advantages and opportunities of attending such meetings.
