hundreds of professionals

French and Bulgarian entrepreneurs, business professionals and investors gathered in Paris for the BVCA event. The discussion showed many synergies between the two ecosystems, such as mutual investments and successful exits.

Meanwhile, representatives from French Tech Sofia also presented the vibrant French community in the Bulgarian capital.
