The Academy of Entrepreneurship (AKEP) is a nonprofit organization founded in 2007 by the historical Educational Association of Athens “HFAISTOS“. It acts in collaboration with the Federation of Hellenic Associations of Young Entrepreneurs (OESYNE) and aims to contribute to the acquisition and development of entrepreneurship and professional competences for its beneficiaries: new and aspiring entrepreneurs, teachers and students in VET and Adult education, marginalized groups and low skill adults. AKEP’s goal is to foster employability and improve instructional practices in education, so as to respond to the challenges of the labour market, raising also awareness about the importance of entrepreneurship education on national and European level.
The progress has to be collective to the society. When creating a project, we look for a way to improve our lives and our surrounding environment, and not only for the capital accumulation in the pockets of a few.
One of the bases of the entrepreneurial mind: if you can share it, do it, so we can build up faster, stronger and more trustable projects, companies and society.
Only doing what you love will allow you to create a project and make it succesful. Many problems, obstacles and bad moments may come, and if you do not work in something you love, it will be easier to give up.
We believe in the social progress through the continuous contribution of active citizens, together with the cultivation and refinement of the essential entrepreneurial attitude, as every aspect in social life is interconnected. We are focused on providing individuals with practical knowledge that they can apply to their own ventures in order to become successful and achieve financial prosperity.
