During the next three years the student team were winning almost every price around the national youth business competitions in Bulgaria. In 2005 the students even became 3rd in Europe awarded on an international student companies trade fair in Brussels, Belgium.

In 2005 the students created and developed the Bulgarian Forums League. Nowadays the Forums League is the largest social sport event in the country.
