2023 marked the 33rd nominations of the Evrika Foundation Awards. Traditionally, the Bulgarian academic community recognizes the efforts of Bulgaria’s brightest minds in three categories: business, farming and science. All the winners are under 35 years old and selected based on their sustained achievements in their field.
And here comes the best part…… Motion Software founder and most recently a Head of Innovations at Exadel, Christo Peev, won the “Young Executive” award. Hip hip hooray!
Christo has been working in the field of software development since his teenage years. He holds a BSc. in Computer Science and MSc. in Innovations and Technology Management from the University of Bath in the United Kingdom.
With substantial entrepreneurial experience, Peev is a founding member of several tech startups. Long before Motion Software, he was a vocal advocate for the “work from anywhere” and work-life balance initiatives.
Christo was selected by Forbes Bulgaria as one of 30 entrepreneurs under 30 years old who changed the world in 2019!
“I am immensely happy to be receiving this award as it acknowledges my long-standing efforts and dedication in my job” – Christo shares.
