Entrepreneur. Career Coach. Doer.
Founder of the "Catapult Your Career" Academy, where I teach students, experienced professionals, and top executives how to advance their careers faster. I lead offline workshops, seminars, as well as online video courses.
Co-founder the mobile investor platform Kown. I worked with top executives and serial entrepreneurs to invest tech startups and help them grow their teams and businesses.
Starting my Career
I was blessed to get a world class education at the top schools in my home country Bulgaria and the USA - the American University in Bulgaria and Washington University in St. Louis.
Nevertheless, when I graduated I felt lost... I had no clue what I wanted to do. As I had an economics degree, I applied to multiple finance positions and got rejected at every single one of them.
At the time I felt devastated... But today I am thankful for all those rejections!
Eventually I started working in a startup called KOWN, where we connected extraordinary entrepreneurs with early stage investors. After successfully building an investor club in Sofia, Bulgaria, I grew into a co-founder of KOWN.
I loved my work as I was learning a ton every single day.
- I got to know Bulgaria's most successful entrepreneurs
- I saw founders building their companies from scratch
- I did everything from biz dev, to marketing, sales, legal, etc.
Building a successful tech startup is usually very very hard. While I am extremely proud of building an investor club, creating a mobile investor platform, providing world-class support to local founders, I must admit we went through countless of failures - literally hundreds of trials, tests, failures. Some small, others big.
But every failure made me smarter, mentally stronger and better prepared for the next challenges.
Failures Taught me to
- AIM for high goals.
- EXECUTE boldly.
- REVIEW my results.
And then REPEAT this process again and again.
This is how we hit success. And I believe if you follow this approach to life eventually you always succeed.
Sharing My Knowledge
While working with founders and startups, I started helping friends accelerate their careers and find jobs they love.
