Sofia-based startup Icanpreneur has closed its pre-seed funding round at €830,000, with a total of raised funding reaching over €1 million, The Recursive reports. Sofia Angels Ventures led the round, joined by MFG Invest along with existing and new business angels.

  • Founded in 2021 by Vesko Kolev, Icanpreneur develops the first Accelerator-as-a-Software that helps tech entrepreneurs and teams get through the journey of creating the idea to product-market fit with higher odds of success. The platform provides guides, know-how, and best practices through its intuitive and collaborative software.

“The startup world is evolving beyond its initial romantic phase. Founders are starting to realize that discovering and solving significant problems is more than art and energy created by the initial inspiration. They started applying a more systematic and scientific approach when creating products, focusing on customer satisfaction and efficient technological solutions. That’s exactly where Icanpreneur offers essential tools to accelerate their progress significantly. We believe the timing is perfect and the company’s team is right for the mission,”
