The GarGarage Foundation is a non-for-profit organization aiming to creating and expanding startup ecosystem in the Balkans. Originating from Bulgaria, the organization is active on local startup events by organizing, participating and promoting activities for technology companies, investors and aspiring entrepreneurs.
GarGarage is now managing an innovative equity-free pre-acceleration program called Jump Start, which aims to inspire, teach and consult entrepreneurs that would like to start their own businesses. The program takes place in Stara Zagora, Bulgaria for 3 months with the active involvement of experienced lecturers and mentors on different startup topics. Every batch consists of 30 participants and aims at starting at least 5 companies to reach the final demo-day stage.

In December 2016, GarGarage organized TechOrigin Plovdiv, a networking event with the participation of LauncHub Ventures, SkyScanner, KOWN and Transformify among other businesses. In February 2017, GarGarage was part of the jury in the Sofia edition of the international pitching competition “Get in the Ring”. Furthermore, GarGarage is going to be an exclusive partner of an Internet of Things and Augmented Reality Technological Academy which is currently being set up by the Technical University of Varna. In addition, Gargarage has also been participating in worldwide events including Web Summit 2016, 1 Year from Now / Mobile World Congress, Codefest and others.
