Our next guest started his first startup venture at 17. By the time he finished school, he managed to sell the business and return his investment. 

Since then Orlin Radev has been a serial entrepreneur, mentor, and supporter of the Bulgarian tech ecosystem.

Most recently, he’s one of the founders and CEO of AMPECO. All-in-one electric vehicle charging management platform, essential for the electric mobility evolution.  

The company recently closed its Series A investment, supported by BMW iVentures and LAUNCHub Ventures to scale and conquer the North American e-mobility market. 

In the episode, Orlin talks about how the ability to craft your own destiny drew him to entrepreneurship. He reflects on the importance of having co-founders who bring a different perspective to the business. “I work better when I have someone to challenge me”, AMPECO’s CEO says. 

Watch the episode to learn how the idea of AMPECO came to be during a 35-hour adventurous drive from Germany to Bulgaria, which concentrated the experience of every EV driver back in 2018.
