Hellenic Entrepreneurship Award 2016
For the 4th year, the Libra Group on behalf of The Hellenic Initiative presented 3 Greek businesses the Hellenic Entrepreneurship Award. These companies will share prize funding of €1.25 million and receive mentoring and a range of business support service.
This brings the total number of winners to 14 since the award program was launched in 2012. The 2016 winners are: Blueground, Bubbllz and Raymetrics which span a range of commercial sectors from the hospitality industry to social media marketing to meteorology.
Ongoing support by the HEA and its partners – helping these start-ups to implement their business plans successfully – is an integral part of the award program’s mission to identify and encourage Greece’s most promising new business ventures.
This year a total of 1,100 plans were submitted to the HEA – a record number of participants since the award program began. Each year winners are selected based on sustainability, innovation, financial prudence and potential for job creation in Greece.
