LAUNCHub was presented by Todor Breshkov. The fund participates as a co-team and engaged partner in all of “the starts up” which means it provides an access to a wide network of experts, technological companies, successful entrepreneurs and investors. Starting up a business is a hard initiative so there are not many people stimulating an innovative business, pointed out Breshkov.
