We are proud to announce that we continue to develop our project, with which we want to enable of 25 digital entrepreneurs in one of the poorest regions of Europe. Thanks to your support, we started to set up another meeting room, as this turned out to be an important need for digital entrepreneurs.
For their work, there is an important necessity - to have a quiet, comfortable and functional room for online meetings. The number of people taking advantage of the environment we have created is constantly increasing, and we continue to connect with new digital entrepreneurs from the region to enrich the community.
The crisis with Covid-19 slowed down our work and prevented the users of the place from visiting it for a long time. However, we continue to work on our idea and expect a complete restart of our activities with even better results when the crisis is controlled.
We strive to be adequate to the situation and to preserve people's lives and health, as this is the most important thing. We believe that people are the most valuable resource, so we care about their well-being. Thanks to GlobalGiving and all those who helped us in this campaign, we continue to provide young professionals who have chosen to live and work in Vratsa with even better conditions for their realization.
We hope to have completed the next stage of our project by the beginning of autumn. Thank you very much for your support!

We are glad to inform you that thanks to your support we have completed another stage of our project to enable the realization and development of 25 digital entrepreneurs in one of Europe's poorest regions.

We have set up a small kitchen and dining area to create additional convenience for the work of enterprising people. We also created a meeting room that digital professionals need to hold their work-related meetings without disturbing others.

The number of people who take advantage of the environment we have created is steadily increasing, and we continue to connect with new digital entrepreneurs from the region to enrich the community.

Thanks to GlobalGiving and all who helped us in this campaign, we were able to provide these young professionals who have chosen to live and work in even better conditions and more convenience for their realization. In doing so, we are taking the next step in the development of the digital community and supporting the growth of the region.

The Nest continues to host exciting digital-related events that attract other interested people.

We are now proceeding with the renovation of another meeting room and social corner that follows the needs of the community. We, with the help of volunteers, are actively involved in our work so that we can realize our idea. Our goal is to have this new part of our project completed by early summer.

We are pleased and grateful to announce that the main premises of the Nest coworking have started operating in October. Already, 14 digital professionals from Vratsa and the region are working in it, and we continue to connect with new people to join the community.Thanks to GlobalGiving and all of you who helped us in this campaign, we were able to provide these young professionals, who have chosen to live and work in Vratsa, with convenient working places with fast wireless internet and all necessary conditions for them. So we are taking the next step in the development of the digital community here by supporting the development of one of the poorest regions in Europe. The Nest is already hosting interesting digital events that are attracting other  people to the community. At that very moment we are continuing with the renovation of the additional rooms, which include two meeting rooms, a kitchen with a dining area and a social area. We, with the help of volunteers, are actively involved in our work so that we can make this idea into reality. Our plans are to have a fully completed and operational coworking space available early next year. Thank you again for your support. We hope to see you soon at The Nest!

We are happy to inform you that the previous month we started the overhaul of the Nest co-working space. Thanks to the support of so many people now the Nest is under construction. The construction workers are working hard in order the Nest co-working to open in the beginning of Octomber, as you can see form the pictures.  

We contacted a designer and he created visualisation of our idea how the Nest co-working space should look like. We are very happy with the results and can't wait to open for people. 

Thanks to the Global giving we managed to expand our network and reach new people. This campaign gave us the confidence and needed experience to try a new crowdfunding campaign in IndieGogo. Now we are one step closer to make our dream come true. 

In the first stages of our renovation of the Nest we had volunteer to help us with preparing the place for the construction workers. It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun!

I am thrilled to provide you with my first update!



Thanks to your support we were able to renovate the joinery work. Below you can find pictures before and after the renovation. In a couple of weeks we will start construction work in the venue. We contacted many companies - both local and in the capital Sofia. Some of them helped us to reach our end goal and made donations or in kind contributions. One of the most generous ones came from HP Foundation.

We already have our first customers - a few people paid rent upfront. If you are interested to spend day or a week to test the coworking space,  please contact us via email.

 

Using different channels, we already raised 24.000 levas. We are happy that this campaign helped us not only financially, but we also managed to expand our network and reach new people. We we already organizing different events like boarding games, film nights, tech talks, different trainings and events.
