The 10th Anniversary Open Coffee was held on Saturday 21/09 at the Natural History Museum.

Michalis Panagiotakis warmed us up through the theatrical improvisation method, sharpened our minds and welcomed the speeches that followed. Illy Coffee from Coffee Cloud was there with us for extra energy.

Spyros Arsenis, Coordinator of NBG Business Seeds, took the lead and spoke about NBG’s important initiative in financing innovative business ideas.

Stelios Archontakis, CEO & Founder of BioCoS and winner of the NBG Innovation Competition spoke about the challenges he faced in the transition from scientific research to entrepreneurship and the opportunities created in the international business arena.

The result of the collaboration of Prince Charles Trust, 100mentors and Bizrupt was presented by Alexandra Karapidaki. Get Hired has come to stay and support graduates and the unemployed in finding work.

Questions from the public once again gave rise to a lively debate that continued on the first floor of the Museum with Heineken free beers and popcorn.
