Plamena Petkova for Success Stories Mag:
You have graduated Geology, but in fact you choose to develop yourself in a rather different direction. Tell me a little bit about you, your career path and how did it happen so that you decided to start founding startups? What attracted you to this kind of self-realization?
I graduated Geology in the Sofia University and the key moment in my professional orientation was when I was an exchange student for 2 semesters at the Technical University in Munich. Then I somehow realized how many more opportunities life actually offers and broadened my horizons.
After I got back to Bulgaria I needed to change my environment and accidentaly or not I came across Start It Smart– a nongovernment organization designed to encourage more young people to start their own business. There I met with other “conspecifics”, with whom I began discussing the hottest startups, books and TED Videos from the very first day. So slowly we started to also came up with various business ideas. After several unsuccessful attempts I was able to focus on one project and the last two and a half years this is the main thing I do.
