The leader of the 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 have to act aiming to come out stronger and more united than ever before.

Our project’s goal is to listen, discuss, communicate the experience and point of view of individuals who are in the entrepreneurial ecosystem. On their turn, inspire and mobilise the creation of new business entities that will allow a new dynamic in Greek society and economy. 

To show that we can all create value from scratch through much work, collaborations and using the right tools!

To contribute in the creation of local communities in each region of our country, strong partnerships among professionals and ambitious entrepreneurs and in addition to provide useful suggestions/ideas for the development of the Greek entrepreneurial ecosystem.”
