The UnityHub Mission is to attract young people closer to nature & to their roots. Our main goal is to transform the rural Bulgarian houses (regions) into shared working spaces, where entrepreneurs, freelancers, digital nomads & startups can enjoy nature, secluded working environment, home-made food & to attend various events & workshops. Mixing the urban and the rural lifestyle, applying the technologies, social innovations and what Nature offers at once. (Re)connecting people with rural areas, locals with people from around the world. Building a Network of local communities, entrepreneurs, business accelerators, incubation experiences.
How does it work?
We have started working on our first location - ZeLLin House. The house is located 50 km away from Sofia airport and only 3 km away from the town of Botevgrad in a mountainous area. After presenting the project idea throughout various business & NGO networks, in 2018 we have started gathering at ZeLLin House. Since then we have changed the whole ZeLLin House environment - we planted fruit trees, vegetables, we have started rennovating the house. The most significant part we have done by now though is creating the Community. We have built a Community of like-minded people - professionals with various background. People coming from different regions in Bulgaria & around the world. Now we have architects, engineers, PR experts, web-developers, digital nomads & entrepreneurs. We have started organizing events & workshops - yoga classes, jazz nights around the campfire, entrepreneurial events & many more. Last but not least we have involved the locals who offer different services & products such as horse riding, painting, baloon jumping, trekking, local food. Along with building the Community, many people from the locals have joined our network and have become our core contributors. Now we go further with making national & international partnerships, applying for grants & negotiating with potential investors. Why? So we could expand our ZeLLin House coworking & coliving area. Thus we could continue transforming next houses in the region. And we will.
We do envision a network of healthy, conscious, self-sufficient, connected villages and rural houses in Bulgaria.
Our next step is within the next 10 years to build a Global village where entrepreneurs, digital nomads, startups & locals would be living & working alongside (P.S. Global village idea comes originally from the creators of Mokrin House).
By creating a network of people, places and projects in rural areas, we do combine the digital technologies, the entrepreneurship and business innovations with the richness and wisdom of Nature and old traditions.
