Eleven Accelerator has proved to be the center of gravity for startups from the Balkan region. It's has been one of the key players in developing and promoting startup ecosystems in the countries in the region. Eleven has provided financing, mentoring, and support to two startups from Montenegro, TourVia.Me and Budo Finder. It also helped to organise a series of startup-focused activities in Montenegro, including Spark.me conference, and Start Trek competition, in partnership with a local NGO Digitalizuj.me. As a Program Director of Spark.me, and a co-founder of Digitalizuj.me, I'm proud of the work we've done with Eleven. The startup ecosystem in Montenegro has developed substantially thanks to the help from Dilyan, Ivaylo, and the rest of the Eleven team, and I really appreciate their professionalism, commitment, energy, and willingness to help.
Eleven Accelerator VF has been a key player in the development of the entrepreneurship ecosystem in Bulgaria and the region and a significant driver of innovation and entrepreneurial activity which placed Sofia as one of the start up capitals of Europe.

JA Bulgaria, as a leading educational enterprise in the country with a network of over 20 universities and 1100 schools, has been a partner and a supporter of Eleven in the organization and execution of courses, trainings, workshops and conferences to attract and develop some of the most innovative and aspiring teams and ideas from within its network. The partnership between the two organizations aims at attracting and developing entrepreneurs from early age and providing an array of critical services to foster their potential.
