Greenhouse project for young businessmen in Greece supported by THIGreenHouse has already hosted events in six cities: Athens, Patras, Heraklion, Kalamata, Corinth, and Chalkida, having supported 442 entrepreneurs so far

ATHENS – The GreenHouse, created to enhance and promote Greek entrepreneurship, presented GreenHouse Sparta in cooperation with The University of Peloponnese, The Public Central Library of Sparti, and Sparti TechLab in Sparta, October 8-12.

Organized by The Hellenic Initiative (THI) in collaboration with the Alba Graduate Business School of The American College of Greece over the past six years, GreenHouse has already hosted events in six cities: Athens, Patras, Heraklion, Kalamata, Corinth, and Chalkida, having supported 442 entrepreneurs so far.

The project was also held under the auspices of the Municipality of Sparta and the Laconian Chamber and included a multitude of free-of-charge activities mainly designed for entrepreneurs, aspiring entrepreneurs, as well as university and high school students.

Attendees of Sparta’s GreenHouse had the chance to participate in the two-day entrepreneurship workshop, in educational sessions on digital media use in business, as well as in open discussion forums with entrepreneurs. Prominent business persons such as Paschalis Tilellis – Plexiart, Elina Kakuru – Kakuru, and Katerina Exacoustidou – Vitabroad, shared their thoughts and experience with the event’s participants, including over 50 students of the 2nd High School of Sparta and many more local stakeholders. The goal of GreenHouse Sparta was to combine Alba Graduate Business School’s expertise with local Spartan entrepreneurial spirit and to provide comprehensive support to business efforts in the city.

The GreenHouse helps anyone who wants to grow their business ideas regardless of age or range of economic activity. This year, thanks to THI’s support, GreenHouse has broadened its horizons and expanded its efforts to support entrepreneurship throughout Greece, both geographically and in terms of the project’s overall results. GreenHouse is transforming from a three-day entrepreneurship workshop into a five-day modular activity organized in cities throughout Greece to enhance entrepreneurial action.

An attendee of GreenHouse Project at Sparta stated: “GreenHouse helped me expand my horizons on entrepreneurship and overcome uncertainties and blind spots in bringing potential business ideas into life. Getting to know people with whom I share similar interests was of equal importance. I think that knowledge and collaboration are the most valuable elements for seeking and building new business ideas. I would like to thank GreenHouse for the experience.”

GreenHouse is just one of the many aspects of the Venture Garden, an entrepreneurship-educational program conducted by Alba Graduate Business School, The American College of Greece in Athens, and the American College of Thessaloniki under the auspices of The Hellenic Initiative. It has evolved into one of Greece’s premier entrepreneurial educational programs, having helped over 415 ideas to grow into businesses.

George P. Stamas, President of the Board of Directors of The Hellenic Initiative, said, “The Hellenic Initiative, through its many endeavors in Greece, especially its annual Venture Fair, knows very well the talent and energy of the country’s young entrepreneurs and we are committed to providing them with the knowledge, mentoring, and networking opportunities that will enable them to succeed and to soar.”

Peter Poulos, THI’s Executive Director, stated: “The Hellenic Initiative is very proud to support such an exemplary endeavor like GreenHouse as boosting youth Greek entrepreneurship is imperative for the Greek economy. Similar projects will eventually help higher growth rates return, addressing one of our country’s major issues, the continuous loss of precious human capital.”
