Happy New Year 2019!
Only a week ago we celebrated the end of 2018, which step aside for the beginning of new professional and personal plans, achievements and, of course, the second IBA year!
We would like to thank once again all of you who have supported us since the birth of the idea of the first global alliance for international business with a Bulgarian connection, until the development of the IBAconnect.com platform, the creation of the luxury bilingual business magazine Elysium and all the business peaks we have conquered together.
Now, after the short winter break, the refreshing of our forces and the plotting of our future moves, we are ready to go even further and offer all our members even more chances of international success and expansion.
We are proud to announce the first big announcement for 2019!
IBA is expanding and joining forces with three new partners, which will increase the capabilities and services of the Alliance so we can offer to our members even more than what we offered during the first IBA year!
Having professionals of this rank joining the Alliance is a clear proof of IBA’s outstanding potential and the future expansion of both the Alliance and its members!
Ivaylo Ivanov and Ivan Lekushev, BGO Software
Ivaylo Ivanov and Ivan Lekushev are founders of the international renowned Bulgarian IT company BGO Software, as well as the free IT academy – Web Academy, which opens the door to the IT industry to over 1,000 people per year. Ivo and Ivan also successfully launched the charity foundation “Out of Love for Bulgaria” and the biggest non-professional basketball league in Bulgaria – BGO Software Basketball League.
”We see in IBA a business platform that was started with the sole purpose of unifying, connecting and enabling our fellow Bulgarians around the globe. We believe that IBA can be a springboard for many Bulgarians, to turn their business ideas into reality, to find business partners and like minded people in many areas. For us it is an honour and a pleasure to be part of this initiative.”
Maria Gergova, United Partners
Maria Gergova is founder and CEO of United Partners, one of the biggest communication agencies in Bulgaria. She is Chairman of the Bulgarian Association of PR Agencies, Founder and President of EO SEE (Entrepreneurs Organization South East Europe) and a Member of the International PR Association (IPRA) Board of Directors
”I believe in the meaning and potential of IBA. I believe in the power of special communities. In today’s dynamic and fast-paced world, more and more people are searching for and finding the right communities for them. I am sure that, like me, many Bulgarians who are developing successfully in different parts of the world will recognize the IBA as their community.”
Detelin Yordanov, Signia Financial Management AG
Detelin Yordanov deals with investment management and advises companies in the field of financial operations and services. He has more than 12 years’ experience in the financial markets, and has lived and worked in Zurich for the last five.
”For several years I have lived outside Bulgaria and I see that there is a lot of potential for successful people out there but they are poorly connected with each other. IBA is precisely this tool enabling better communication channels and exchange of talents, contacts, and know how. The connecting link between people, between business and talent, between Bulgaria and the Bulgarians outside the country. There is everything for everyone..”
Let’s say Welcome to all those talented and proven professionals who will contribute with their international experience, knowledge and contacts to the improvement of all the services offered by the IBA network and the Alliance!
Expect many new and exciting offers in the coming months.
Don’t forget that the second official edition of the Alliance’s bilingual media Elysium Business Magazine! The theme this time was “The Voyage”, and the magazine is already traveling to the Bulgarian diaspora all over the world! You can also read it online here.
As you already know, after the release of each issue, we start working immediately on the next one! We invite all of you who want to participate in the Spring 2019 Elysium issue to write us during January to receive 5 personal issues of “The Voyage”, as well as preferential prices for advertising and participation in the next edition of the luxury magazine!
Do not stop following all the new offers, events and opportunities at IBA!
