The Recursive Podcast is back with a fresh new season. Our first guest is the managing director of the global entrepreneurial network Endeavor Bulgaria Momchil Vassilev. He is a seasoned manager who walked all the way from consulting to entrepreneurship to ecosystem building.
In his role at Endeavor Bulgaria, he helps create a vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem and nurture founders with global ambitions, the ability to scale fast, and a give-back mindset.
Prior to that, Vassilev has over 20 years of professional experience in management and business development. He co-founded a biotech company called Provity, led the Corporate Development of VIA Investment group, and oversaw audits, mergers, and acquisitions at PricewaterhouseCoopers.

“Endeavor Bulgaria is all about helping high-impact entrepreneurs to grow big and through their success, to impact the economy and society in general”, he explains.
