RADOSLAV PAVLOV (36)
Sixteen years ago he moved from Bulgaria to Germany to finish his bachelor’s degree in management of tourism and started working in the service field at P1 to finance his course of studies.
At the same time he received his apprenticeship diploma as a gastronomical specialist.
By being the best one in his job and being highly talented he developed very quick to a leading manager of Germanys most famous nightlife brand. In 2008 Radoslav Pavlov became a CEO of P1 Inc. His dedication and longtime experiences through all departments provided him deep insights about the special characteristics of this extraordinary club. As a CEO he was able to take part in modeling the concept, planning and expansion of the temporary quarter in the famous and popular “Haus der Kunst”.
He was responsible for several business opportunities such as the P1 Bar, the P1 club and together with his team he contributed to animate the myth of the P1 and push the clubs development. Pavlov evolved many merchandising items for the P1 brand environment before positioning them successfully on the market. These items include also an own energy drink, the P1 Energy Drink, the P1 Perfume, the P1 Shoe Wear, the P1 Jewelry Collection, the own P1 CD compilation and the P1 Credit Card. By trying to push innovation in his club, Rado and a team of friends designed in 2009 a mobile POS system running on iOS devices. The media loved the new product (read more) and suddenly there were other bars and restaurants who wanted to use the system.
Long story short, since 2010 Rado is member of the board of Orderbird AG, a complete mPOS solution that is ideal for bars, restaurants and clubs.
With his knowhow as gastronomical specialist he was deeply involved in the process of product development and provides the team with professional advice on every important step. Now Orderbird is market leader in Europe and #4 in the world! (Thank you Jakob, Patrick, Bastian and Artur - I learned a lot from and with you!)
On an entrepreneurial level he co-founded various companies and, as a Business Angel, advises start-ups in building and growing their businesses.
After ending his career in the hospitality industry in 2013, Rado Pavlov is now turning his passion about Tech and Internet into reality and is advising, investing and working with Startups from Berlin to Sofia. His very own baby BusExpress is the #1 booking platform for bus journeys in Bulgaria and now expanding into new markets.
