The Mentoring Programme for Companies in Accelerator Startup Sofia to Launch This Week


Sofia Investment Agency is organising the mentor programme at “Accelerator Startup Sofia” of Sofia Municipality on September 11 and 12. The 12 mentors come from the start-up ecosystem, including VC funds, the private and public sectors and academia.  The two-day training will cover a wide range of topics like business planning, sales, design and presentation, digital marketing, fundraising, financing tools,  entering foreign markets, working with institutions and more. 

We thank the mentors who will join the training programme of “Accelerator Startup Sofia”. We are delighted to have attracted experts from LAUNCHub, BrightCap, EY Bulgaria, Dimitrova, Staykova and Partners, Out2Bound, 356Labs, The DOTS, Vangavis, UNWE and Fund of Funds to the initiative. We believe that their experience and guidance will help the successful development of young companies. 

See here all mentors and session topics during the two days of the mentoring programme. 


“Accelerator Startup Sofia” launched in January 2019. More than 40 innovative startup companies and projects applied and 13 of them received grants of up to BGN 10 000 and access to the mentoring programme in September. 

The beneficiaries of the programme develop products and services in areas such as 3D printing, consumer experience, marketing and advertising, health care, education and others.

The initiative is a pilot project of Sofia Municipality and is jointly implemented by Invest Sofia, the Municipal SME Guarantee Fund and Sofia Municipality’s Europe Programme. The programme aims to support innovative, social and start-up companies that develop innovative products, services or processes.
