Personal quote:
Europe has a huge potential to be the next startup continent. It has lots of problems to solve and a multicultural dimension that other continents lack. The last 15 years I have helped a lot of startup business to launch or achieve specific growth goals. As a startup journalist I love to write stories about early stage startups. The vision of the program aligns with my personal values. Cyprus has a lot to offer to the European Ecosystem. It can be the tech hub of three continents. Let's build 10,000 startups in Europe.
