Long before the ‘startup community and eco-system’ became familiar to most of you we were naked on the arena. Trying to find a light in Bulgaria – successful people with their stories who will make this concept closer to us and the reality.

Seven years from that time – the community of entrepreneurs in Bulgaria is a fact. And it lives. And it grows.

Now we are proud to say – we already have acceleration and venture funds based in Bulgaria and we are partnering with them. We have established a living network and close contacts with a solid number of international funds and organizations. Many common projects put us on the ground that creates the foundation of the startup eco-system in Bulgaria.

It is our focus now to empower entrepreneurs by providing the skills and support required. Our team has been in the heart of the Infostart project, an initiative for supporting new business ideas as well as IT education. We believe it to be of crucial importance for starting businesses in the technology driver world of today. 

Our mission:

>> build bridges between the young people and the business
>> provide access to young people to trainings which improve their business skills
>> awaken the entrepreneurial spirit among the people in our society
>> support inexperienced entrepreneurs all the way from turning an idea into a successful business,
>> develop local business communities

NOVA Idea Foundation supports young people in Bulgaria who want to turn their ideas into a successful business and those who want to improve their practical business skills.

NOVA Idea strives to create environment where entrepreneurs and young professionals flourish. We are the Y-school of doing business. Our organization links entrepreneurs with professionals, role models and investors, who have the knowledge and best practices. We also provide access to our wide network of contacts, for contacts are so vital for nascent businesses. 

Our team has been actively participating and managing international and national projects and are eager to become part of new ones which aim to create and foster a sustainable environment for talents, young entrepreneurs, and aspiring leaders.

Setting the Foundations

Developing and helping entrepreneurial people in their way to success



InfoStart is the endeavour we, as a team, have been in the heart of. It is an initiative that directly reflects our passion for educating and supporting people who want to start a business or are simply devoted to personal improvement.

We believe that in today’s world technology is not simply “good to have and know” but it is the main tool through which humans can express their most unique and important characteristic: the drive to create. IT has disrupted almost all spheres of human activity and it is poised to continue doing so for the foreseeable future.

We need to be prepared.

From people with promising ideas to developing organisations who need to grow further, we have the ability to invest in good ideas, find a suitable partners or support the further product development.

IT education:

Understanding IT is indispensable part of doing business today. We offer multi-profile education service to boost entrepreneurial people’s competitive advantage.

They are a powerful means for providing access to capital and know-how from experienced and successful business people and entrepreneurs.
