Founder Institute Infosession

Having successfully completed the first semester of the Athens Founder Institute with the creation of 6 innovative companies, we launched the upcoming Spring Semester 2015 during this Infosession that took place on December 18th at Orange Grove.

It was an informational event where attendants met with the local Directors, Mentors and Graduates, asked questions and learned how they can launch a tech startup in Athens with help from top CEOs, experienced peers and a structured approach.

“In the Founder Institute we build entrepreneurs, who in turn will create sustainable and enduring tech companies, contributing to the growth and extroversion of the Greek market. What is most important to us is to create Founders with high potential for success. We do not examine the business idea, but rather we predict the chances of success of each candidate as an entrepreneur through a carefully designed admissions test.” said Michalis Stangos, Co-founder of Industry Disruptors – Game Changers and Director of the Athens Founder Institute.

Founder Institute supports a wide range of technology industries including digital media, software, biotech, agtech, cleantech, ecommerce, advertising, consumer electronics, and more! Whether you have an idea or not, whether you have a full-time job or you are unemployed, regardless of your age or status.

The event took place with the support of Orange Grove & the Embassy of Netherlands.
