Alongside that, the honorary jury chose Telerik Academy as the undisputed winner of the “Educational Idea” category because of our training program for software developers – Telerik Academy Alpha.
During the new 6-month program, the participants undergo 440 hours of trainings in which the traditional lecture format is replaced with an interactive, personalized training. The trainers act as mentors and facilitators. The focus is entirely on the practical preparation of the participants, while the training halls mimic the real working environment. The program also includes topics beyond programming, which develop the participants’ soft skills.
“Through Campus X and Telerik Academy we aim to provide a supportive ecosystem for the acceleration of tech companies and talent in Bulgaria, so that Telerik’s success is not an isolated case. We want to create conditions in which success is a sustainable process and can be multiplied.
Although we officially launched Campus X in April, it’s already the home of a number of start-ups and well-established technology companies with a total valuation of about €50 M and some serious ambitions for growth. The confidence those companies have in us and the awards we won today are indicators that we’re headed in the right direction,” said the co-founder of Campus X and Telerik Academy Boyko Iaramov at the b2b Media event.
