beamUp lab is a program for promoting and encouraging the growth of Bulgarian startups, small and medium-sized companies. It is an initiative of Bulgarian Stock Exchange under the auspices of the Ministry of Finance implemented in partnership with the Fund of Funds, the Bulgarian Development Bank, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the Bulgarian Association of Licensed Investment Intermediaries and the Bulgarian Startup Association.
The goal of the program is to distinguish promising and innovative Bulgarian companies with sustainable business models, to make them visible for potential investors as well as to strengthen their knowledge of the financing opportunities.
The main focus of the program is a cycle of four strategic meetings, where companies get acquainted with all financing opportunities so that they can invest flexibly and successfully in their development and growth. During the meetings, the companies exchange experience and best business practices, mentored by highly qualified experts of the partnering organisations and institutions, and interact professionally with them in an informal environment.
The program is for the duration of one year, and 20 companies will go through it. These companies are selected according to a special methodology developed by Bulgarian Stock Exchange.
As a result of constant monitoring of the companies, at the end of the program, Bulgarian Stock Exchange and the partners will announce their ranking and will award the best-performing companies. Each company will receive a certificate that it has accomplished the program and an electronic logo that will establish its reputation in the market and will be a recognition of its business success. We are convinced that a company like yours that will go through the program will become its true ambassador.
