Greek Youth Innovation Project ‘egg’ Invites Promising Ideas
Do you have an innovative business idea? Well than take it a step further by joining the 4th Egg: Enter – Grow – Go program which aims to support youth innovation and promote entrepreneurship.
Made possible with the support of Eurobank in collaboration with Corallia, the egg program invites aspiring entrepreneurs from across Greece to table fresh ideas and then capitalize on these with the help of support services, business training and access to a network of experts.
Applicants between 18 and 44 years of age are invited to submit an eight-page business plan in any area of the economy by April 4 (4pm), which will be evaluated on the basis of innovation, vision and viability by an independent evaluation committee with expertise in investment management for startups.
The finalists will have a 12-month period to proceed through the incubation-acceleration-cooperation period before making their ideas into fully-grown business projects. Business plans that contribute to the expansion of the Greek economy utilizing innovation and new technologies are encouraged.
Q&A on February 25
On February 25, egg will host an Open Day at its headquarters (190 Syngrou Ave) at 5pm where interested candidates can learn more about the program and how to submit business plans.
“We remain committed to highlighting the entrepreneurial spirit and original ideas of our youth, helping to bring forth our country’s most creative and innovative forces, while contributing to the recovery of our economy,” said Eurobank Deputy Chief Executive Officer Stavros Ioannou.
“Our goal is to create opportunities and prospects through actions and synergies that promote healthy entrepreneurship, create value and offer sustainable growth potential. Every time an egg cycle is completed, it confirms that our trust in the generation of innovation, our support of their ideas and efforts, is the best guarantee for the country’s future.”
