FEW EXTRA WORDS

Lyubomir grew up in a family with deep business and entrepreneurial spirit. Influenced by this, he begins his career in the financial-insurance industry over 20 years ago where he makes his first steps in entrepreneurship while still in university – a franchise contract for an “Official representative branch-office” with Allianz Bulgaria (insurance, banking and pension funds companies of the holding structure). This results in nearly 8 years of successful partnership. Later on, he joins as partner in an insurance brokerage company, where he successfully multiplies the client base, the revenues and profits by hundreds of percent (YoY) in the years to come.

 

He continued to follow his dream and passion about the fund and asset management business, as well as the banking industry. He spends twelve years in different senior roles, building extensive experience and many career achievements.

 

Lyubomir is a constant learner and absolutely passionate about technologies and digitalization since his teenage years. By his own volition, he spends time after school in Sofia’s Technical University studying computer technology basics. Nowadays, this passion for the cutting-edge technologies has evolved into a business, which endorses inventors, founders and innovators in their dreams and aspirations to make the world a safer, cleaner, smarter and a better place for the present and future generations of humanity.

 

He believes in the principle of maintaining sharp mind through a strong body and likes to spend time in the mountains. In his free time, he loves speed-skiing down the hills in the winter and mountain biking in the summer.

FAVOURITE QUOTE

Lyubomir is influenced by Steve Jobs, who he respects highly and believes is the greatest innovator of recent history. His favourite Steve Jobs quote is from a speech made in front of Stanford University in 1995.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
