CEO, Enterprise Greece
Greece has become a regional center for technology.
The country’s tech ambitions cover a range of subsectors − startups, technology infrastructure, R&D − and foreign investors are paying attention. A new generation of entrepreneurs emerged from Greece’s economic crisis and are rising to the challenges of this exciting global market.
The hard work is starting to pay off. Last year, a record number of startups drew fresh investments with the positive momentum spilling into this year despite the challenging economic conditions.
Research and education − two crucial elements to any innovative process − are proving to make the difference in Greece, feeding the tech sector with solutions and well trained professionals. At the same time, global tech leaders − most recently Hewlett Packard – have chosen Greece to research and develop their next generation of products and services.
Greece is making its mark on the global technology map, as this month’s meeting of the European Business Angels Network in Thessaloniki shows. And the Greek startups of today, are at the heart of the country’s digital future.
