It’s quite inspiring to be at an international conference and get the chance to exchange ideas, see what others do, find possible collaborators and even listen to important people giving you insight on important matters, or how they solved problems.

The EYE (European Youth Event) was the first European Event for CEL. We were one of the organizations that represented Cyprus and we sure hoped we treated it as the platform it was meant to be. Eight representatives, couple of dozen events and 3 days later, the delegates parted ways with a lot to share on an individual but also on a team perspective. So here is mine…and a glance of what will follow.
CEL in collaboration with StartupEurope and the European Commission invites you to a discussion regarding entrepreneurship in the EU and the opportunities available for Cyprus.
The event agenda includes:
Startup Europe: Opportunities and Funding (Startup Europe)
Youth Entrepreneurship in Europe (Cypriot Enterprise Link)
European Business Angels Network (CYBAN)
Clean Launchpad EU (Chrysalis Leap)Objective: To showcase how Europe can effectively help startups and also how Europe is connected in terms of entrepreneurship
I write this article from a personal standpoint and as a reply to all those good folks, who regard the entrepreneurial growth in Cyprus as slow moving. You see if you examine things at the macro level, you will come to realize that this little Mediterranean dot has made tremendous leaps in entrepreneurial development during the recent years, despite its economic meltdown and political turbulence.

After requests, I decided to switch to English (it’s the right thing to do after all when talking about global subjects such as entrepreneurship).
So, what you’ve missed up till now: not THAT much.
A small discussion about Women and Entrepreneurship, another one based on Education and Entrepreneurship, all wrapped up with my (not so) crazy ideas about the subjects.

The presentation was hosted by the IEEE GOLD Cyprus at their event “Learn StartUp”, which was held at the University of Cyprus and covered the creation, growth and progress of CEL as well as the lessons learned.

Game Changer Talks.
Ένα ακόμα event στα πλαίσια της παγκόσμιας εβδομάδας επιχειρηματικότητας στην Ελλάδα. Οργανωμένο, καταρτισμένο, ετοιμοπόλεμο ας πούμε. Ο κάθε ομιλητής είναι ένας πραγματικός Game Changer στον κλάδο, στη χώρα, στο θέμα του. Ένιωσα πραγματικά τυχερή που είχα την ευκαιρία να βρίσκομαι σε εκείνο το αμφιθέατρο όπου με απλά λόγια “έζησα επικές στιγμές”.
