Opera Snapshot_2020-07-16_110138_helleni


The most direct way  of expression and action for members of the community is the participation in the meetings of the Hellenic Start-up Association:

"I am - I do - I want"

Our basic position in the Hellenic Start-up Association is that  Entrepreneurship is a de facto social activity.  We still perceive his sense as increasingly important for start-ups  belong to a community, as well as vital  collaborations  -  synergies  that can emerge and promote a start up in its first steps.

So to support our members we organize separately  networking events  in a structured, predetermined but at the same time relaxed form. They are carried out  systematically, on the second Wednesday of every second month, starting in October 2012.   The slogan is given by the very title of the series of events -  "I am-I do-I want":

Every attendee has at his disposal  Two minutes  for

  • to  present  himself and his professional capacity,

  • to  reported  how it operates (or intends to operate) on a business level

  • to  recommend  in the community the members of his team, the object of the start-up that he represents as well as the needs, help and cooperation that he would like to receive from the community.


There is always free time for open discussion between members on issues of common interest.
