In the heart of Bulgaria, nestled among the majestic Pirin Mountains, the town of Bansko serves as more than just a picturesque holiday destination. It’s rapidly transforming into a vibrant hub for entrepreneurs, now to be further enhanced by the introduction of the Nomad Excel Entrepreneurship Bootcamp. The month-long program is designed to equip aspiring entrepreneurs with the tools, knowledge, and networks needed to launch and sustain successful ventures. All is set to kick-off on May 1st and there are just a few final spots left, so be sure to apply as soon as possible.

One of the bootcamp’s core strengths is its emphasis on personalized mentorship. The opportunity to engage with successful entrepreneurs and industry experts provides invaluable insights into the realities of building a startup. This mentorship is complemented by extensive networking opportunities, allowing participants to forge connections that could shape their entrepreneurial journey long after the program ends.

“We have really big success stories, with some companies worth millions who have gone through our programs. This doesn’t always guarantee that you will succeed on your first try, and this is really important to understand, but you are going to have the tools and knowledge so that when you are ready to start a business, you will be able to put together a team and create something new,” says Omri Levavi, Executive Facilitator at Nomad Excel.

“You need to be in it to win it, but it will be super intense. I think this is the main idea – it needs to be intense. It’s going to be the perfect place to disconnect from the race of life and connect with empowering entrepreneurial energy. You need to be prepared to put in the effort to make things happen, ” adds Omer Harari, Executive Program Director.

Below is a structured overview of the curriculum spread across four weeks, highlighting the key topics and workshops participants will engage in.
