The future is hard to imagine and even harder to create. It belongs to those who take the challenge – “the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently.” The ones who know they are here to grow something bigger than themselves. The ones who like to ‘play with the fast forward button’ both in what they dream and how they turn it into reality.
On September 21, 2013 (Saturday), at 16:30 in Studio 5, NDK, these people are coming together. Some of the most successful Bulgarian businessmen and women will be joined by forward-thinking-and-doing young entrepreneurs and startupers to imagine their future together and celebrate the final stage of the 3Challenge entrepreneurship tournament – Grow (Season 4).
Join the 3Challenge – Grow exclusive event to:
- See the 3Challenge – Grow FFinalists present their visions of the future and achievements to our prominent jury and compete for the 1st prize and many other awards;
- Meet and learn one-on-one from some of the most successful Bulgarian entrepreneurs (see who below);
- Connect with the heart of the Start It Smart community of young entrepreneurs and startupers;
- Take part in a curious experiment and make your contribution to the future of the Bulgarian entrepreneurship ecosystem.
Once again, this is only possible thanks to the Start It Smart team, our general partner Superhosting.bg, our sponsors Telerik and Obecto, all our partners and of course all of you who dream and create the Bulgarian businesses of the future and support us on the way!
