Why do we believe that these types of forums are important?

The lack of investments in innovations is a major problem for their realization. Exactly for this reason the Bulgarian Confederation for Investment and Brain Storm Consult decided to create the key connection and to introduce a new event in the public business environment, which should be a key instrument for raising investments.

Such type of forums arise the interest not only of innovators looking for funding of their innovative ideas, or investors looking for innovations to develop, but also of the rest of the visitors who are part of the business society in Bulgaria. Such events provoke the visitors to think about the economic climate in Bulgaria and its need of innovative ideas in support of its development.
