Sofia to host EBAN 2018 – Europe’s biggest business angel event

EBAN Sofia 2018

On June 25-26, Sofia will host the largest and most influential annual business angel event in Europe - the EBAN Annual Congress 2018. The Congress is a key event for the entrepreneurial environment in Europe and will take place at the Central Military Club in Sofia.

More than 350 participants and over 150 top business angels (venture investors) from around the globe are expected to attend the event, to meet the local entrepreneurial ecosystem and discuss the latest trends in the innovation and investment opportunities in Bulgaria and the region.

EBAN’s annual congress is one of the largest international venture investment events in Europe and around the world. It is conducted annually by EBAN in cooperation with the most influential members of the organisation. Each year the event plays a key role in expanding ties and cooperation in the region, accessing international capital and entering into syndicated deals with startup companies along with some of the industry’s leading experts. 

After 18 successful events, the last taking place in Porto in 2016 and Malaga in 2017, this year’s edition will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria, and will be organized in cooperation with the Bulgarian Association of Business Angels and Eleven.

A specialised panel, “Local Heroes”, dedicated to successful companies from the country and the region as well as prominent representatives of the Bulgarian investment community will be held during the congress. Its aim is to uncover the potential of Bulgaria as an attractive destination for entrepreneurship and investment.

The event will provide an opportunity for Bulgarian entrepreneurs to present their projects to a large international audience of top investors and to provide funding for the development of their ideas. The Congress provides a unique opportunity to create new contacts, participate in panel discussions, and engage in training on entrepreneurship and funding attraction.

The organisers have invited local startups looking for development opportunities, as well as investors exploring promising ideas to join the forum. The deadline for application is June 15, 2018.
