Introduction. After the year of 2000, a major event would take place, that would reshape the way we see the past and allow us to even find out about our personal pasts. This event bears the name of <<archival revolution>>. Through it, many new collections and funds have entered the research circuit. This would have a big impact not only for historical research, but also for normal people. This would allow them to right the wrongs that have been done to them by the communist regimes and to find out where they came from. That being said, this would allow researchers to monetize on this work outside the academic realm and create new entrepreneurs. Historians such as Dumitru Lăcătușu and Mihai Burcea have previously explained the importance of the liberalization of the archives. Still, up until now, nobody showed its entrepreneurial potential.
