Sofia Tech Park is a partner of the AIM Global 2023 initiative, which is organized annually by the Annual Investment Meeting (AIM) Foundation – an international organization committed to the development of the global economy by promoting the creation of effective strategies to improve productivity, expand business and develop trade relationships.
AIM Global 2023 is a traditional annual international exhibition and will take place next year in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) in May. The aim of the event is to promote strategic networking and cross-border investment cooperation to support the acceleration of trade, internationalization of businesses and partnership between countries. The event attracts over 20,000 participants and more than 500 exhibitors from 174 countries.
An agreement between Sofia Tech Park and the global AIM initiative was signed at the end of 2022. The document stipulates that the two parties will organize joint bilateral business meetings, assist representatives of government and business organizations in their participation in the exhibition and make economic connections. Within the framework of the partnership, bilateral business forums and trainings related to investment processes and business development will be organized.
The agreement also provides for Bulgarian startups to have the opportunity to join the AIM Global Startups Network and through the platform to make connections with potential investors from around the world.
Each edition of AIM Global also examines the main challenges that economies face on their path to development. Investment trends and strategies that can be used to maximise the potential of each business, country and region are also a topic of discussion at the upcoming forum.
In addition to the business and economic platform, the AIM Foundation is developing the AIM Global Investment Network, an established investment platform comprised of 15 affiliated business groups that provides funding opportunities to companies around the world. The Annual Investment Meeting aims to create potential opportunities and develop economic relationships between nations.
