The growth program for the most promising companies in Bulgaria!

One of Endeavor’s most successful growth programs – Dare to Scale (D2S) will be held for the fifth consecutive year in Sofia and will last four months – from September to December 2023.

What is Dare to Scale

Dare to Scale is a 4-month accelerator for entrepreneurs who want to scale their already profitable business with the help of expert mentoring and networking. The program aims to support Bulgarian late-stage startups in their quest to become globally competitive, growth-oriented and sustainable enterprises.

Each year, the program partners, together with the Endeavor network, interview shortlisted candidates and select a group of 6-12 ambitious companies to join Dare to Scale.

About the programme

Company founders will have the opportunity to participate in specialized trainings in key areas for the development of any scaling business: organization management, marketing and sales, business planning and recruitment of capital. The program will conclude with the final Demo Day event, during which companies will present their businesses to a panel of established business leaders.

Admissions for the fifth edition of the program are currently underway! Companies based in Bulgaria, with a turnover of over BGN 200 000 for the past year and up to 150 employees can apply.

The deadline for applications is 30 April 2023.
