DataStork in Top Three for the Startup of the Year Award
On the 8th of June Varna hosted the fifth edition of the Annual Outsourcing Conference – an event celebrating the innovation and digitalization in the outsourcing business. Organized by the Bulgarian Outsourcing Association (BOA) the conference was a full day of discussion panels led by some of the sector’s leaders and was an outstanding opportunity to share experience and ideas with the industry’s best.
The event culminated with the ceremony for the Innovation, Technology and Sourcing Awards 2018. The awards were given out for a third year, honoring the efforts of local government, investors and companies for leading best practice and business excellence and creating a favorable business environment for the growth of the sourcing and technology industry in Bulgaria. DataStork participated in the Young Company/Startup of the Year category and was proud to be awarded third place, following the winner Cargotec and Red Fire Games and Sandvik who shared the second place with the same number of points. DataStork’s own CEO, Doichin Yordanov and HR Manager, Hristina Andonova were there to attend the conference and receive the award.
The Young Company/Startup of the Year Award is for companies that have been operating on the market for up to 3 years at the moment of application. A panel of industry experts evaluated applicants in four areas – Team and Business Results, Market, Growth or Potential for Growth and Innovation/Disruption, consistent with the long-term objectives of the company. DataStork was recognized for its unique software development process which guarantees 100% success rate, the R&D engineers and managers team where experienced staff boosts young talents through close mentorship and internal trainings, and the company’s policy on empowering its employees to drive all aspects of its development. This is the first time we have applied for the category and we’re honored to have come out in the top three!
A huge thank you to the Bulgarian Outsourcing Association. We look forward to seeing you in 2019 when we have our sights set on first place!
