There are people who have amazing ideas for their own business and a vision of how they can contribute to the development of their environment. They are brave, daring and often succeed in achieving their goals, regardless of the difficulties on their way. We at The Lodge Coworking Space believe that there are many such people in Stara Zagora and we are ready to help them to realize their entrepreneurial ideas.

That is the reason why we are extremely happy to announce that we will host the BASE Business Academy for Startup Entrepreneurs, which will hold its first edition in Stara Zagora in March 2023!

The program is free and aims to encourage future entrepreneurs to develop their business ideas and turn them into successful ventures. Both teenagers and adults can join. It is important to have an interesting idea for creating their own business or have their own company, but also to want to improve their knowledge in the individual spheres of entrepreneurship.

BASE is held in partnership with “America for Bulgaria” Foundation and the Association of Bulgarian Leaders and Entrepreneurs (ABLE), and so far a total of 32 editions have been realized in various places in Bulgaria. In Stara Zagora, BASE is organized by “IT Stara Zagora” – an association focused on the development of the digital and entrepreneurial ecosystem in the city and the region.

The program will start in March and for 12 weeks the participants will meet with experienced entrepreneurs who will share their knowledge and practical experience. Thanks to them, those wishing to start their own business will gain theoretical knowledge and practical skills in areas such as finance, sales, marketing, human resources, legal norms, presentation skills.

The main goal of BASE is that at the end of the training the future entrepreneurs should prepare and present a business plan for their project. A special jury will choose the three outstanding projects and the winners will receive a financial incentive from the intended prize fund.

Anyone wishing to become part of BASE in Stara Zagora can apply for participation by filling in the form HERE until February 21, 2023.

On February 2, 2023, on a special WEBINAR, the organizers will provide more information about the first edition of BASE Stara Zagora. The event will also include entrepreneurs who have already gone through the program and successfully started their own business.

Additional information can be found on the website of the Business Academy for start-up entrepreneurs –
