We are delighted, to announce that we were awarded the third place in the “Best Starting Business” category on the Forbes Business Awards 2017. For the second consecutive year we are among the finalists in the category and deservedly took our place in the top three.

Furthermore, Ivaylo Ivanov shared with the public, about the great happiness and enthusiasm with which we are developing our company and reminded all entrepreneurs not to forget to have fun while they are starting and growing their businesses.
The Forbes Business Awards was held for the 7th consecutive year. It aims to promote entrepreneurial spirit and sound business practices. The jury had the difficult task of assessing the applications of dozens of the best companies in Bulgaria, divided into eight categories.
We proudly can say that we would be able to achieve those high results with you – our investors, who were supporting us from the very begging of the company and you continue to trust us every day.

We believe that together we will continue to build a sustainable investment service to help more people make their own financial decisions and give them the opportunity to reach their financial independence.
