Panayot Chafkarov has been part of the Multi Kulti Collective team since August 2014 as a researcher and project manager, playing a leading role in the development of the association's social enterprise. He has been a member of the Management Board since December 2019.
Prior joining Multi Kulti Collective, Panayot gained many years of experience as an entrepreneur and manager in the restaurant and IT industry. This allows him to expand our Multi Kulti network of migrant/refugee-owned restaurants in Sofia, with which he organizes catering, culinary courses and culinary team building.
As a student at the University of National and World Economy (then Higher Institute of Economics) Panayot was responsible for the numerous foreign students living in Studentski grad and supported their integration. Thus he developed strong intercultural skills and interest in the topic. Panayot has an impressive historical, geographical and ethnic knowledge, which he constantly develops through his work.
