The leader of this action, Startup Greece Week, Thanos Paraschos stated:
“We are aware of the great difficulties we are facing this period as well as the crisis that might arise. Especially now, we firmly believe that we must act aiming to come out stronger and more united than ever before.
This project’s main objective is to listen, discuss and communicate the experience and point of view of individuals who are in the entrepreneurial ecosystem. Accordingly, through their knowledge and inspiration, we want to mobilise the creation of new business entities that will allow new dynamics in the Greek society and economy.
To show that we can all create value and significance from scratch, through hard work, collaborations and by using the right tools!
To contribute in the creation of local communities in each region of our country, strong partnerships among professionals and young aspiring entrepreneurs, and in addition, to provide useful suggestions/ideas for the development of the Greek entrepreneurial ecosystem.”
Within the STARTUP GREECE WEEK communication framework, online live Q&A sessions are conducted daily at 22.00 with Greek Founders around the world that are streaming on all our social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter). This is also accessible on live television, and is broadcasted on RISE TV channel in Athens as well as nationwide through Wind Vision. The show features Greeks from all over the world that create technological ventures, and our aim is to spread awareness for our project.
