Next on The Recursive podcast, we tell the story of a Bulgarian entrepreneur engineering the future of cars.

After more than 20 years in different positions in the IT industry, Dimitar Dimitrov founded Digital Lights, a software company building innovative solutions for the mobility industry. Recently, Digital Lights has been ranked the 3d fastest-growing IT company in Bulgaria according to the DigitalK 101 ranking.

In his conversation with Georgi Nenov, Dimitar reflects on transitioning from the corporate world to entrepreneurship and his realization of the purpose of work.

“For me, working is an instrument to learn and explore life, to becoming better and wiser”, he shares.

Dimitar Dimitrov talks about his leadership philosophy and why creativity and creating new things have become pillars of the company culture at Digital Lights.

He also shares lessons from the scaling journey of Digital Lights and how to keep the family spirit of the team under the pressure of growing operations and delivering quality products and services. For Dimitar, the key is to go fast but still enjoy the ride. Keep a humble attitude and be mindful of your progression.

Dimitar’s vision for Digital Lights is to explore the future of mobility, but also the opportunities in deep tech and applied sciences. “We are actually learning how to build the soul, the software for an entire vehicle”, he says and explains the potential of Bulgaria as a software hub for the automotive industry.

As a lecturer at the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics of Sofia University, his Alma Mater, Dimitar also talks about the importance of knowledge-sharing and the joint role of universities and businesses in supporting the development of local tech talent.
