Project details


Development of a business model to empower girls and young women through digital communication skills

Period of execution:

01/08 / 2018-31 / 03/2019 (8 months)

Program: Competition for support of girls and young women 2018 of BFZ

Financing: BGN 3,000

With the financial support of the Bulgarian Women's Fund


Within the project, the IDF team developed, tested and validated a model of social entrepreneurship. It is planned for girls and young women between the ages of 18 and 35 to undergo online training to acquire competencies for experts in digital communication. Passengers successfully gain access to civic organizations and NGOs seeking to hire experts to communicate and develop their digital positioning.


Digital communicators take care of the digital profile and image of the organization and its presence in the online environment. They are a key factor in building trust, disseminating results, attracting attention, creating a community of supporters and supporters of the causes. Often civil society organizations do not have enough capacity to carry out quality and timely activities related to information and publicity, including online. Therefore, digital communicators hired for a specific project or task is a convenient option.


The project included was done:

  • Research, through different methods of the needs, desires and tasks of users. Two different questionnaires were distributed to the target groups of girls and young women and NGO representatives

  • Analysis of consumer needs and development of Value Proposition Model

  • Development of a prototype with a general structure and content of the training, sample materials to it, a demo version of the training platform, which were tested with real users

  • Analysis of the results and completed business model with the strategyzer canvas (BMC).
