10.06.2015 Bulgarian Development Bank Awarded the Winners in the Campaign the Big Small
Bulgarian Development Bank (BDB) presented its award within the campaign to support the small and medium business The Big Small. The 15 winners will be able to benefit from funding under favourable interest conditions, without paying any fees and commissions.
The finalists were announced yesterday in a formal ceremony with the participation of the president Mr. Rosen Plevneliev, deputy prime minister Tomislav Donchev, minister of the economy Bozhidar Lukarski and representatives of the small and medium business. The prize of BDB was awarded by Mr. Bilyan Balev, executive director of the financial institution. "I am pleased to present here today and to award the "biggest" small companies on behalf of the Management of Bulgarian Development Bank. The choice was difficult, since there were lots of candidates which deserved to win the prize; there were great examples of innovativeness and successful entrepreneurship. This makes me happy, since usually the big ideas are hidden in the small enterprises. People who have their own business think independently and know that they can hardly compete with the large companies and therefore they must be creative" said Mr. Balev.
The campaign The Big small is organised by Newspaper Group Bulgaria and is aimed at promoting the small and medium-sized companies which develop a successful business. The key criteria for selection of the candidates were sustainable development, introduction of innovation and social contribution. The pilot edition of the competition was attended by 170 companies and due to the huge interest in the initiative the organisers presented their ambition to turn the competition into a tradition.
