Sofia Startup Expo 2018 to take place for the first time in Bulgaria

The first Bulgarian exposition for startup innovative companies Sofia Startup Expo 2018 (SSE) will take place in Sofia in March this year.

Sofia Startup Expo 2018 is a trade show for startups and new entrepreneurs who will present their latest innovative products, technologies and services. At the exposition technologies, innovation managers and investors will meet to build partnerships and create, and shape the future. That’s why the slogan of the first edition of the exhibition is: “Give wings to your ideas”.

Project manager Dimitrina Hristeva said that the reasons for organising the exhibition are the world trend for such events as well as the economic development of the country.

“Starting companies have prospects, banks are looking for new projects to diversify their portfolios, and Bulgaria has good market conditions for development. There is an economic revolution in the world that changes the way of doing business, the structuring of the workforce and greatly shortens the distance from the idea to its implementation,” she said.

The SSE will be held on March 13 and 14 2018, at Sofia Tech Park‘s John Atanassov Hall and will cover all the components needed by the startup innovative business – startup companies, the leading corporations management, government agencies, incubators, investors, venture capital funds, banks, students’ ideas and technology companies from all over the world.

Exhibitors from the field of the information and communication technologies, education, construction, energy, transport, ecology, the agro-food industry, agriculture, health, financial services, and other spheres are expected to take part in the exhibition. The event will be attended by leaders, experienced entrepreneurs, investors, as well as key visionaries and futurists to give wings to the best ideas.

The event comprises a two-day exhibition, with a one-day conference session, interactive seminars, technical hackathon and a ceremony for awarding of gold medals for innovations.

The Sofia Globe is a media partner of the event.
