What we do

Our role is to unite you all: the community, the people who matter, the movers of the ecosystem – whether you are startups, incubators, funds, co-working spaces, or even newbies, wanting to build a business.

Coming from abroad? We’ll help you meet everyone so you quickly feel at home in Bulgaria.

We are not the typical industrial association. We run and work in startups so we know what you need and we speak the same language.
