20 Mar 2024

Sofia, Bulgaria – March 20, 2024 – Nasekomo, a leading biotech company in the insect bioconversion industry, announces the appointment of Stefka Mavrodieva as its new Chief Digital Officer. Ms. Mavrodieva brings over 20 years of experience in the IT industry, with a focus on strategic programs involving digitalization, Cloud solutions and overall business development.

In her new role, Ms. Mavrodieva will be responsible for the development and execution of Nasekomo’s digital strategy, including big data management, Artificial Intelligence driven automation, technology integration and cyber security. She will also play a key role in the company’s efforts to scale its operations and expand into new markets through its innovative franchise model.

The appointment comes a few months after the company attracted an investment of 8 million euros to develop a new generation of bio-based technologies with zero waste and after late last year Nasekomo and Siemens Bulgaria announced a strategic partnership to digitise the cultivation of Hermetia Illuces for industrial purposes .

I am inspired to join Nasekomo at this pivotal time in the company’s growth,” said Ms. Mavrodieva. “The company presents the unique opportunity to revolutionise the insect bio-engineering industry and I am confident that my experience and expertise will help achieve these goals.”

Nasekomo’s ambition to be an innovator in the dynamically developing insect industry has driven the company to work forward scaling the access to bioconversion technologies through a franchise model with a network of digitised farms. A key prerequisite for achieving this goal is the development of smart technologies and the training of artificial intelligence to digitise all stages of the insect rearing process, protein production and inter-factory connectivity. Nasekomo already holds a series of international patents for robotic solutions in this field, giving it a technological advantage over competitors from other countries.

“Both the company’s ambitions and culture response to my nature. I believe I will find new opportunities to apply my previous experience, exploring completely new territories in the field of biotechnology in synergy with the innovations in the technological world,” shared the new Chief Digitisation Officer at Nasekomo.
