The Bulgarian Fintech Association (BFA) and the Dubai International Centre (DIFC) are thrilled to invite you to join them on a virtual journey to Fintech Bulgaria. During the webinar, the BFA, in collaboration with Innovative Sofia, will show you the benefits and opportunities of developing a Fintech business in the European Union (EU). They will guide you through the EU Fintech jungle and show you a well-hidden Fintech oasis – Bulgaria – a comparatively small, developing EU member state which your Fintech business can use as an access point to the European market.
