Eleven Invests €1.3 M in Another Eight Bulgarian Technology Companies

The Bulgaria-based venture capital fund Eleven Ventures announced it plans to invest a total of €1.3 M in eight new startups. These are the first investments of Eleven’s second fund of €6 M, that closed entirely with private capital in February this year. The investee companies are selected among more than 200 candidates from Bulgaria and the region and are mainly B2B focused with SaaS (Software as a Service) products.

With its new investment policy, the fund will provide long-term development capital. Portfolio companies will no longer participate in an acceleration program of a limited duration but instead will gain access to an infrastructure of knowledge, capital, global partnerships and a cohesive community of entrepreneurs, mentors, and investors close to Eleven. Based on the individual needs of each company, this infrastructure shall mobilize the necessary resources in the right moment. Eleven hopes to create a direct dialogue between startups and private investors to help develop the entire ecosystem.

Daniel Tomov, Partner at Eleven, commented in a press release: “The startup environment in Bulgaria is developing rapidly. The entrepreneurs we meet are getting more and more experienced. There are already many examples of successful and less successful practices for growing a company that the founders share with each other and learn from others’ experience. Thanks to this, the focus of startup companies is getting directed more towards the customers and their respective needs, which contributes to the proper product development.”
