Innovation hub Sofia

Welcome to MediaMotorEurope!

Welcome to MediaMotorEurope!

We started the implementation of MediaMotorEurope, an international project, funded under Horizon 2020 although with a serious delay. But now everything is delaying for known and logical reasons. Bulgaria participates in this project through the Cluster Sofia Knowledge City. The project aims to nurture high-potential European deep tech innovators, solving today’s most prominent media industry challenges and support them in building media solutions for tomorrow. 

The plans to build a strong and vibrant European deep-tech ecosystem targeting the media and the creative industries. We will assist high-potential startups and scaleups to get to the market and to connect with Investor Networks.

To this end, four innovative hubs will be created in Bulgaria, Greece, Belgium, and Norway. In Bulgaria, a Sofia Knowledge & Innovation Hub will be operating. Leading players from the media industry ecosystem in Bulgaria will be involved in close cooperation, including media companies, universities, R&D organizations, deep-tech companies and experts, business accelerators and incubators, business mentors, and consultants. Support and assistance will receive a group of deep-tech and innovative companies with significant R&D and market potential from Bulgaria.

What does the assistance for these companies mean?

  • Technical assistance - providing access to a broad international network of highly qualified mentors, consultants and experts with extensive experience and capabilities in the media industry, high technology, business development and market and financial modeling;
