To be honest I did not spend much time in reading and preparing, but decided to act. After a few days search without result in the capital city Sofia, I was left with 24 hours before my flight back to Switzerland. I had only a day to spend in Plovdiv. But this time was enough to find Ivan. And I found him not anywhere, but in Hackcafe. I heard about this hacker’s space in Plovdiv that works as a coworking space. I also remembered that some of the materials that recommended best places to find a business partner and hacker’s spaces were among them. And they were right! I met Ivan, we talked about our ideas, our goals, about us, our plans. We found common interests and an idea that we both believe in. Within less than a day I had the right person.
This is how our partnership started, that marked the beginning of BizLabs - project we believe in, where we invest our time, energy and resources, in order to make it a place where young and entrepreneurial people can develop themselves and their business ideas
