The entrepreneurial ecosystem of Central and Eastern Europe is picking up traction and the region is awaiting its billion euro company soon! The winner of the Founders Games Challenge has already over 12 million users from 140 countries and growing.

The New Markets Startup Oscars Ceremony was held on the second day of Webit.Festival Europe in Sofia, the digital capital of the new markets.

1438 startups from 60 countries have applied. There were 3 rounds of valuation and finally 65 of them were invited to join the festival and provided free expo booths and opportunity to pitch in front of 20 investors and global enterprise leaders.
For 2 days the jury selected 5 out of 65 to present at the ceremony. See video from the live streaming of the Award Ceremony here

The 5 selected finalists were: Biowatch (FinTech biometric company from Switzerland), Clikem (Advertising white label URL shortening & monetization platform from Israel), BuddyGuard (a German home security system packed in a single and beautiful device), (Bulgarian based online brochure service with over 10 M monthly users in Europe) , AdGuard (Russian startup for security/privacy protection and ad blocker) .
As the names of the finalist were kept secret to the very last moment, one of the selected finalists BuddyGuard has left to catch a flight and missed its opportunity to win this record award. It was replaced by the next on the list - Playground Energy.

Finally the Founders Games Trophy and cash award in seed investment of 200 000 EUR was granted to AdGuard – a Russian startup with 12 million users in 140 countries, $1.5M annual revenue with 50-75% annual growth. AdGuard is a software tool to protect users from web security/privacy threats including malware, js tracking and scam/untrusted web-pages and blocking online ads.

The majority of the 65 selected startups were in post seed stage with 200 000 to 2 million EUR investment made already and growth potential.

There was also a special pre seed section of the Challenge too.
The € 200’000 award was raised only by Bulgarian investors and successful entrepreneurs to prove that Bulgarian ecosystem is not only supporting its own growth but also the growth of European startups. The 4 investors include the founder of Telerik Vassil Terziev, who made the biggest exit in CEE with Telerik, which was acquired by Progress for 264 million, Ivo Evgeniev (owner of Rosslyn Capital), Lyubomir Minchev (founder of largest SEE system integrator Telelink) and Plamen Russev, investor, philanthropist and Chairman of Webit.Foundation.

TECHNOLOGY HAS NO GENDER < Sheree Atcheson of Women Who Code @WEBIT.FEST'16 >

shereeWomen Who Code is a global non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring women to excel in technology careers by creating a global, connected community of women in technology.  WWC was founded in 2011 and has since grown to 50,000 members spanning 20 countries. Women Who Code creates an avenue for women in tech by hosting free meetups around the world, and showcases the amazing careers that it can provide-especially to young girls.

Sheree Atcheson is UK Expansion Director of WomenWhoCode.  Here is the recent talk that we had with her, sharing thoughts on what it is to be a girl in tech and what it takes to change the stereotypes:


WEBIT: Speaking the facts, is it the IT world man’s territory or not anymore? What transformation have you witnessed for the years as director of Women Who Code?

Sheree: As the UK expansion director of women who code, I’ve witnessed the change in shift from when I started this outreach 3-4 years ago. I don’t believe IT is a mans territory – it is anyone’s territory who wishes to take it and make it into something. In the past years, I have worked with local governments, worldwide companies and huge businesses who have all been interested in ensuring there is no “gender specific territory” in this industry. The existence of these people is exactly the kind of shift we need.


WEBIT: What could be done to motivate more girls to get interested in technology?

Sheree: The age old question. It’s a very difficult and detailed problem to try and combat gender stereotypes which have been instilled in parents, teachers and the toy industry. When the majority of toys (from newborn onwards) are targeting girls with pink frilly princess themed toys and boys with blue trucks/engineering toys then we have a lot of work to ensure that those stereotypes do not stop either gender from believing they can and can’t do certain things. Thankfully due to goldieblox, Lego and Lottie dolls, we’re working to prevent the issue in its very first form.


As for getting girls interested in GCSE and A LEVEL engineering modules, we need to ensure they are always given the opportunity and that teachers are well informed. More often than not, careers teachers are not aware of how vast and lucrative the tech industry is, and if they are not aware, there is a trickle down effect which means the parents don’t know and therefore they steer their children elsewhere.


WEBIT: What are the biggest changes we can foresee in terms of female and male engagement in the IT sphere?

Sheree: We have already seen big shifts, with organisations like women who code growing to over 50,000 members. This kind of change is no coincidence and it’s happening because people are interested in making a change. We host weekly and monthly events all over the world, for free, and we’re able to do this because of the large number of people wanting to help change this industry for the better.


WEBIT: Have you ever been discriminated or underestimated as female engineer?

Sheree: I was a software engineer for approx 3 years. Now I am a product analyst for market data feed handler technology. I have been very lucky to have not experienced some of the horror stories I have heard of from other women. I have had inappropriate comments made about my appearance and how that somehow is why I have been relatively successful – those kinds of comments directly undermine the hours and hours of work I have put into my outreach career (whether or not that’s the original aim for the comment is irrelevant, it’s not acceptable).


WEBIT: Chicago was the first city to make computer science a core subject, required for graduation. Do we need to close the gap between male and female coders early in school?

Sheree: Yes. 100% yes. As I said above, these issues stem from a very young age. The quicker we can work with children to highlight the benefits of the tech industry, the better. We at Women Who Code actively work with schools all over the world to showcase local role models to young girls so they don’t fall into the “you can’t be what you can’t see” mentality. They will be able to see what they can accomplish, if this is the career they’re interested in.


WEBIT: GitHub is one of the largest open-source software communities in the world. A recent research (based on approximately 3m pull requests) found that code written by women was approved at a higher rate (78.6%) than code written by men (74.6%). “Women’s acceptance rates dominate over men’s for every programming language in the top 10, to various degrees,” the researchers found, but only if the gender was not disclosed.

Possible explanation: May be women just need to work very hard to prove their skills in female-unfriendly environment?

Sheree: It’s very hard to pin point to definitive reasoning for this, but from the statistics, it can show that the quality of the women’s code is better. I believe the quality of a coder cannot be broken down into “women vs men” (not all men are good coders and neither are all women), but needs to be looked at on a case by case basis.


WEBIT: Sarah Lacy, the founder of Pando wrote an article describing disturbing issues on why the VC’s hesitation to fund women start at home. Responding, Sarah Nadav, who is entrepreneur, economist and journalist published a screenshot of conversation she had with a manager of a major VC:

Screenshot 2016-03-22 18.33.49

What is your advice to young girls, who will face discrimination or arrogant behaviour?
Sheree: There are arrogant people in every walk of life and you will 100% come across them. My advice is to always be aware of someone like this and never let them devalue your work or opinions. Also be cautious of yourself, never become that arrogant person and always try to remember how much hard work you had to put into your career to get it where it is now – you’re the leader now and it’s your turn to help the next generation be as awesome as you are.


You can meet Sheree at WEBIT.FEST’16 and listed to her talk on the stage of the Dev Summit. 

Tickets prices increase with 30% from April 1st, so hurry up and book your access to the festival. 





This year WEBIT.FESTIVAL welcomes startups from more than 40 countries, pre-seed and post-seed and startups with series A and B of investments. All of them come to Sofia to take the challenge of Founders Games 2016.

Before we ring the bell of WEBIT.FESTIVAL on April 19th, you can still apply here by April 5th to join the competing startups at Founders Games’16.


Every idea is a million dollar-idea, depending on your targets, ambitions and mostly – hard work. Starbucks is just a coffee shop, Uber – just another way to travel in the city, Airbnb rents your mattress for a couple of nights, Amazon was an online book store, Spotify – another radio service, Facebook – an university messaging network, Twitter – a wall for 140 letters… Everything is just an idea, before you grow it to a successful business.  Some great examples of the “fixed and growth mindsets” theory  you can find in this piece of Brain Pickings and the article of Salman Khan The Learning Myth: Why I’ll Never Tell My Son He’s Smart . The difference between the two mindset concepts gives the organic meaning of an entrepreneur’s mind state.

МОРАН ЦЕРФ В СОФИЯ ЗА WEBIT.FESTIVAL 2016 – Да хакнеш “Super Mario” като да хакнеш човешки мозък

Да хакнеш мозък e почти същото като да хакнеш компютър… само, ако си Моран Церф, разбира се. Биографията му напомня сценарий за sci-fi филм още от ранна детска възраст, когато семейството му се мести от Франция в Израел.


Моран изпитва свръх интерес към компютрите през 80-те години, когато най-забавното му занимание е играта Quests, която изисква писане на команди. През 90-те, игрите се променят, компютрите се развиват, а Моран хаква популярната на всички игра –  Super Mario. Представете си колко принцеси можехте да спасите, ако имахте неограничен живот без да ядете гъби за да се превърнете в гигант?

MarioMushroomНавършил 18, той вече пренася познанията си в израелската армия, където служи в специален отряд и хакерството се превръща в негов начин на живот. С навлизането на интернет, Моран става част от хакерски онлайн групи и споделя, че първият път, когато чува споменаването на Джулиан Асанж и Марк Зукербърг, веднага си спомня тези две имена от ранните години на хакерите в мрежата.


С годините, хакването на програми, преминава в хакване на хардуер и засилване на неговия интерес към механизмите на човешкото съзнание, което го тласка към изучаването на невро науката и активността на мозъка, емоциите и поведенческата психология.

Ако се опитвате да търсите оправдание, че времето ви не достига и е твърде късно да започнете нещо ново, да промените себе си и онова, което не харесвате, ако не намирате мотивация и причини да учите цял живот, то вие НЕ приличате на Моран Церф.

Освен хакер на компютри и мозъци, той е бил също дизайнер на мебели, пилот, радио водещ и филмов режисьор.


Настоящата му работа и научен труд включва изучаването на BMI (Brain Machine Interface), или просто казано – как мозъкът ни кодира информация, която прехвърля като команди към машини, които могат да се учат и стават все по-умни с времето. Например, това би оказало революционен ефект върху функционирането на изкуствени крайници и други bionic части от човешкото тяло. Да свържем мозъка си с машина, която да бъде управлявана от нервни импулси е бъдещето на медицината.

Тазгодишното издание на Tech Summit, в рамките на WEBIT.FESTIVAL ще се проведе в два дни, 19-20 април в София Тех Парк. Там ще ви пренесем в бъдещето, а д-р Моран Церф ще хакне и вашите мозъци. Едно от неговите най-запомнящи се участия е лекцията му за TED. В рамките на фестивала, от него ще разберете “Какво ни учи невро науката за промяната и как можете да използвате психологията на своето и чуждото поведение в бизнеса”.


Останалите лектори и темите, които ще се обсъждат можете да видите на Част от тах включват:


  • Urban tech, air pollution & the future of smart environmental policy
  • How new neuroscience technology will impact sex, pleasure and pain
  • Highly skilled migrants for European smart cities
  • “Innovation and Digital Transformation accelerating the GDP growth in the New Economy : Example of Smart Energy, Smart Cities and Smart Consumers
