Our Team

ABLE Activator is the leadership and entrepreneurship program developed by  the Association of the Bulgarian Leaders and Entrepreneurs (ABLE) – an active community of entrepreneurial young people, who contribute to the development of the environment around them, wherever they are.

Novel view

We dare to change ourselves and the world around us!

Perpetual progress

We never stop developing and improving.

We see opportunities, not problems

In insurmountable obstacles, we see opportunities.

Leadership

We are role models for others, and we help them reach their full potential.

Initiative

We share our ideas and passion, and we turn them into action.

Tens of members and friends of ABLE contribute to the continuous development and constant improvement of ABLE Activator in various ways.

With the exception of the Project leader, all the members of the operative team are volunteers, a lot of whom also graduates from previous editions of ABLE Activator.

Rafi is a graduate from the 2nd edition of ABLE Activator. She is passionate about personal development and she believes it is only possible if one is ready to step out of the comfort zone and start taking small challenges every day. She loves the ABLE community because here she meets people who are a source of constant inspiration as they are risk takers, they act, they know to get up if they fall and are the real examples that everyone can go as far as they dare.
