TAKE OFF GREECE has evolved and now consists of a seven member team: Dr. Ioanna Sapfo Pepelasis, AUEB (Mission coordination, Business Plan); Elina Paraskevopoulou, Lawyer (Legal expertise); Lee Poseidon, Jumpstart USA (Development Strategy); Dr. Irini Rigopoulou, University of Aegean/AUEB,(Business and Marketing ); Dr.Angeliki Karagiannaki, AUEB (Bootcamp, Incubation); Alexis Komselis, ALBA (technical training); Dr. Nikitas Kastis, Mind 2 innovate (Human resources and funding).
Following a bootcamp we organised in January 2017 at ACEin and a workshop at ALBA in February 2017, we made our official launch in March 2017 at the Numismatic Museum.
Our current activity for the autumn-winter of 2017 is that of providing business coaching to a select group of 40+/60+ ‘Take Offers’, who are at the moment in various stages of evolution in the development of their start-up business. In addition, we are learning more on how the international ecosystem on senior entrepreneurship operates.
In parallel with the above, the academic members of TAKE OFF GREECE are conducting research at their institutions on the demographic and socio-economic characteristics of start-uppers who have received incubation in Greece.
Please consult our Facebook pages (See below) to find material on us , our ‘Take Offers’, and our events. We also post: interviews we have taken from prominent 40+ /60+ entrepreneurs and life coaches, informative articles by others on mature entrepreneurship and what the Greek press has written about us.
