Meeting with EU Commissioner Christos Stylianides, responsible for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management
Andreas Hadjisofocleous represented our company at the Startup Europe Week Nicosia event. Startup Europe Week, the largest entrepreneurship event in Europe, is an initiative of Startup Europe / European Commission. From 6th to 10th February 2017 the SEW put a spotlight on everything the regions are doing to support European entrepreneurs.
Andreas talked about entrepreneurship, failure and how important is perseverance in the business world. The talk was mainly focused on empowering young people to take the leading role in their life and to not be afraid to risk and fail. These values form the founding principles of our company.
