Our community kept growing and welcoming aspiring entrepreneurs, mentors and business experts from literally all over the world! Besides our 3 main programmes supporting new ventures across all sectors, we launched 3 new initiatives: the Entrepreneurial University, the Lighthouse Project and the SDG House Greece! It was also a great year for many of our alumni that gained significant success and recognition.

So excited to have had our first physical #meetup at our new #OrangeGrove office after a very long time. Circumstances meant having to limit to only a small group and wear masks. But, even so, it was wonderful to meet with (some of the) startups from our newest cohort, brainstorm and exchange ideas!
Meet up Thursdays of the OG community have officially been launched! And we hope that circumstances will soon allow us to welcome more members of our network to this new meet up series of the startups ecosystem!
