Get your summer solstice shoes ready for a community gathering at the foot of the Vitosha mountain, in Sofia, Bulgaria. SeedBlink and The Recursive are co-hosting a panel discussion with entrepreneurs on democratizing access to investments in the Bulgarian tech startup ecosystem.


The event will take place on June 21st, at 6 PM EEST at Campus X or online. 


As startups in Bulgaria are gaining more traction, and the ecosystem is on its way to building future unicorns, local investors’ interest has been peaking. 

Last year, there have been over $300M invested in local ventures, and new topics are arising: 

  • Why is co-investing rising in popularity among early-stage investors in Europe as a support tool for VC funding? 
  • What do you need as a startup to succeed with your fundraising campaign? 
  • How can we make sure a broader range of investors get access to promising tech ventures in Bulgaria? 
  • What can be done so the process of startup investing becomes much easier, both for founders and investors?

Romanian SeedBlink, the fastest-growing investment platform in SEE, which last year raised a €3M investment, opened a new Bulgarian office this spring. The team’s target is to support angel investors that are looking to diversify their portfolios and startups to scale. 


“Our main goal is to show that the model we’ve been successfully testing in Romania, could be exported across Europe,” shared Andrei Dudoiu, a co-founder of SeedBlink.


So far, the Romanian platform has collaborated with over 10K investors from 50 countries and assisted over 60 businesses to launch online campaigns. In Bulgaria, they have already collaborated with Dronamics and are looking for new players to run campaigns with.  

Angel Hadjiev, SeedBlink Country Manager in Bulgaria, is on a quest to support the local pre-seed to B Series tech startups to access capital. To do so, he intends to build a community of supportive investors and mentors and help new projects scale faster.
