The new office, led by Bulgaria country manager Angel Hadjiev, will offer a range of investment instruments, tech startup opportunities and market access solutions to local investors, startups, and partners, SeedBlink said in an e-mailed statement.
The Sofia office will work with local angel groups, VCs, and private investors to assist their portfolio diversification, deal with both completion and syndicalisation needs, and support local startups in accessing capital and scale support.
