Teodora Ivanova-Valeva

Founder of IVersa and director of social development at CSR Bulgaria , as well as an expert at the Open Society Institute.


I define myself as a multitasker. My professional life has long been related to the design and management of grant schemes and programs. I have worked in public administration and private management consulting, but I have found the passion and meaning for myself in working in the non-governmental sector and the organizations and people working for causes. I am very interested in how they can be effective, influential and successful in their missions. My work in support of organizations is related to project participation, mentoring, assistance in creating fundraising and business plans, communication and management strategies, lectures, consulting and much more. As a trainer, I develop and present author trainings on topics such as fundraising, social entrepreneurship, Business Model Canvas, Storytelling and communications, European and donor funding programs, Project Management and others.

My passion - the change that comes from us.

Ivelina Gadjeva

Founder of Design for All Bulgaria .


I am an industrial design specialist and the only expert in Bulgaria who deals with inclusive design. I have experience in the creative industry and have worked in sectors related to product design, urban planning and service design. I strongly believe that design has the potential to improve every aspect of people's lives, and that every person, regardless of their abilities, age, gender and culture, deserves to live in an accessible and attractive environment.

Since this year I am part of the team that implements TOM Bulgaria - an initiative to create change through the power of design.


I will be your guide in the creative process of recognizing and solving problems and will introduce you to the wide field of applicability of design thinking methods.


I can't wait to meet you, tomorrow's leaders of social change.
