The Edu Compass Foundation offers trainings, consultation and coaching services for schools, universities and NGOs. We help educational organizations achieve their goals, overcome challenges they are facing and achieve educational improvement in any desired aspect of their services.

The team of the foundation provides analysis in a non – intrusive way without the old-school classroom observations, using an innovative methodology and supports educational administration and educators design, implement and measure effective and innovative solutions without extra work load for teacher and educational staff.


We firmly believe entrepreneurship is an attitude towards life and it cannot be taught it can be only developed. Such development requires adequate structures of activities, projects and values that each educational institution lives. It also requires that such educational approach is organically put in practice for real results. The Edu Compass Foundation team, with the leadership of Veselin Zefirov in that area, brings the right talent to consult educational institutions to implement entrepreneurship into their culture, practices, programs and curriculum in an organic way.
