Bulgarian scientists apply their findings
Nine scientists present as entrepreneurs their startup in front of investors – this happened yesterday in the contest Entrepreneur in science, writes the electronic edition of “Bg science”.
The scientific projects presented in September are already competing as specific business ideas. 30,000 leva is the award from the Karoll Foundation Knowledge for one or more projects.
It is expected to decide which one to support after the speakers from abroad also vote.
The training was developed by the Karoll Knowledge Foundation specifically for science and has a practical purpose. This enabled researchers within the program to build on and develop their ideas. During the contest, ready-made teams and start-up products were shown.
