Recently we have introduced 5 BESCO members everyone should be aware of — innovative, progressive, companies based on strong morals and sustainable value set…now there is more. BESCO is proud to present another 5 members turning out to be game-changers in their own industry fields. Here we go:

  1. Campus X

Campus X is the place where great tech companies come to give life to innovative ideas and accelerate on their path to growth. More than coworking. Better than a hub. Our members are startups, scale-ups, established organizations and international companies with the aspirations and potential for exponential success. To join us, you need to carry and operate by the right values and be committed to give as much as you’re willing to get from the community.” This year Campus X has won the Central and East European Startup Award for best co-working space. But it is really much more than that…

2. CEO Angels club

 CEO Angels Club (CAC) is a group of top managers and entrepreneurs investing their own money in startups through acquiring shares for a profit. This is probably the only consolidated business angel association in Bulgaria. These guys provide “oxygen” for early-stage startups. Get to know them of you are in a lookout for cash!

4. Dronamics.

Our mission at DRONAMICS is to democratize airfreight and lower the cost of shipping in emerging markets. To achieve this, we are developing a new type of cargo airplane — small, unmanned and extremely fuel-efficient. It can transport 350 KG over 2,500 KM for a cost that’s 50%+ lower than other airplanes. It flies autonomously, can be monitored and managed remotely via satellite, and the whole system costs less than a sports car. At first, it didn’t sound possible, but we keep proving it is, which is why we’ve called it “The Black Swan”. It can land on short and unpaved runways, enabling on-demand point-to-point flights and speedy same-day delivery even to the most remote locations that would otherwise take days to reach over ground or sea.” Go to the website and admire at the “Black Swan” you will get the shivers….
