On November 18th, 2017 the NGO “Paralel-Silistra” organised the second information day under the title “Information Day – Innovation Camp”. The event attracted more than 50 students from the “Atanas Burov” Vocational School of Economics and “P. Yavorov” Language School. The young entrepreneurs discussed a business case under the guidance of mentors – representatives of the business community in Silistra. They presented their business plans on how to improve the city of Silistra. The best of these youth creative solutions received distinctive awards.

The event promotes the joint Bulgarian-Romanian educational scheme “Entrepreneurship without Borders”. This model encourages not only entrepreneurship training, but also foreign language learning in Bulgarian and Romanian languages as well as practical exchange activities and cooperation with the business community in the cross-border region.

At the end of the event, Andon Simeonov, the General Director for SoftServe Bulgaria presented his personal experience as an entrepreneur.
