Invest Sofia started a partnership with WHISP LTD – a software company operating in the field of the administrative relocation of foreign talent. At an official meeting, Maria Hristova the CEO of Invest Sofia and Greta Stefanova – Manager of Whisp Ltd. signed a Memorandum of Cooperation.
Whisp Ltd. provides specialized HR software and services in areas such as
relocation of foreign employees in Bulgarian companies, Blue Card issuance for foreign employees, seasonal personnel, administrative processes of getting access to healthcare upon relocation, as well as assistance in restoring health insurance entitlements of Bulgarian citizens after a long stay abroad.
Whisp Ltd. will assist Invest Sofia in investment inquiries regarding local legislation in the relocation of foreign employees, guidance and consultations regarding the health care system and the transfer of health insurance entitlements for foreign employees, assistance in legal procedures for relocation of employees without Bulgarian citizenship, etc.
Considering the expertise of our organizations, we believe that Whisp Ltd. will be a valued partner in our network especially when it comes to new non-EU investors in Sofia. A few days ago, the regulation for issuing a Startup Visa for Bulgaria was officially promulgated. The Visa will grant quick access to long-term residence in our country to entrepreneurs from third countries who want to develop high-tech and/or innovative projects in Bulgaria. The new regulation will give entrepreneurs from non-EU countries the opportunity to attract foreign experts, who will bring new skills, technologies, and practices, enrich our business ecosystem, and create new jobs. Our future cooperation with Whisp Ltd. will give us the necessary expertise to facilitate the entry of new investors in Sofia by providing fast consulting for legally compliant procedures when relocating talents in Sofia.
According to the Agreement, Whisp Ltd. becomes part of our partner network under the Sofia IS initiative, launched by Invest Sofia to provide integrated free-of-charge services to investors in the city. Almost 20 local and international independent companies are now part of Sofia IS. With their expertise and ours, we manage to provide tailored services covering all the necessary initial activities while exploring Sofia as a business destination until the actual setting up of business operations in the city. Our full-scope services cover extensive and in-depth information, analysis, and reports; financial and legal consulting; labor market and human capital; office, commercial, and industrial real estate; administrative procedures, coworking spaces and much more.
