On 31th of October (2012) eight non-governmental organizations that work in the field of entrepreneurship founded the Bulgarian Entrepreneurship and Innovation Cluster (BEIC). BEIC exists to stimulate communication and collaboration, promote unity and further understanding of the Bulgarian entrepreneurship and innovation community.
Some of BEIC goals (described in the charter) are:
- To lobby for the rights and interests of the community in front of appropriate national and international institutions
- To provide both members and the public with a periodic overview of the state, structure and development of the Bulgarian entrepreneurship and innovation community
Among BEIC founders were:
- CEED Bulgaria;
- StartUP Foundation;
- Junior Achievement Bulgaria;
- betahaus Sofia;
- Start It Smart;
- init Lab;
- New Business;
ABLE was one of the founders as well. The event took place in betahaus and host was Boyan Benev.
We want to congratulate all BEIC members for stepping into this historical moment! Together we will promote entrepreneurship culture in Bulgaria!
