After supporting startups to raise 45 million euros in the first two years of its launch, SeedBlink aims to accelerate its expansion into Europe in 2022. Led by Angel Hadjiev, the newly appointed Country Manager, the recently opened Sofia office will offer a range of investment instruments and tech startup opportunities and market access solutions to local investors, startups, and partners.
“Bulgaria has a rapidly growing reputation as a technology hub in central Europe, with a growing tech ecosystem and visionary investors and startup scene. We are excited to bring our best startup investment know-how to Bulgaria and expand our offering of European tech investment opportunities with accessible tickets, enabling Bulgarians to diversify their portfolios. This is also an opportunity for local startups to launch crowd investing campaigns, be supported by high net-worth individuals, and scale better”, says Andrei Dudoiu, Managing Partner and Co-Founder at SeedBlink.
Angel Hadjiev, the newly appointed Bulgarian Country Manager, has more than 15 years of international experience in the financial services industry with a focus on M&A, capital raising, and restructuring. Before joining SeedBlink, he was an Assistant Director in Deloitte’s Corporate Finance Department and a Fund Manager at Capital Investments Fund.
“We know how much our investors value local market expertise, so I am delighted that Angel Hadjiev has joined us and will head the newly established branch in Bulgaria”, states Laurențiu Ghenciu, Chief Business Officer at SeedBlink.
