Ivo Vasilev and Lino Velev of Start IT Smart collaborate with me for the LeanSpark conference. Jon Bradford introduces me to Soas Eleven accelerator, where I return for a quick workshop. ! Stanislav Sirakov from LauncHub invites me back to teach there. Now, Im regularly in Bulgaria to teach at Eleven and Launchub. Boyan Benev and Stephan Gantchev invite me back to speak at Balkan Venture Forum. Chris Georgiev organises the Course Correction meetup at Betahaus. !
