Our Director Andreas Hadjisofocleous was invited to attend the Horasis Global Meeting which was held in Cascais, Portugal, over 5-8 May. Horasis is a global visions community dedicated to inspiring our future.
Over 600 CEOs, thought leaders and senior politicians (including several heads-of-governments and Ministers) from around the world attended the meeting to discuss global issues. Andreas talked about Global Risks and how entrepreneurs could create positive change circumventing geopolitical tensions.
The immediate Global Risks identified during the panel discussion:
– Regional Wars
– Irresponsible Leadership
– Climate Change
– Fake News
– Misuse of A.I Technology
Our Director, Andreas Hadjisofocleous, has been selected as 1 of 100 Young Innovation Leaders in Europe to be awarded the Young Transatlantic Innovation Leaders Initiative (YTILI) Fellowship, a program of the U.S. Department of State in partnership with The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF).
“YTILI empowers young European entrepreneurs and innovators with the tools, networks, and resources they need to grow their enterprises and contribute more fully to economic development and job creation, security, and good governance in the region”.
Fellows will use the tools and knowledge they gain through the program to grow their business and improve the state of their communities.
