The competition counted a unique line up of judges, consisting of:

– Scott Rafer (Co-founder of various acquired startups and StartupBootcamp SF mentor),

– Andy Angelos (Social media expert, co-founder of the recently acquired SocialKaty and writer for Mashable),

– David Kadavy (Web design expert and author of Amazon’s #18 best-selling book) and

– George Cambanis (Founding partner of Deloitte Greece, leading Deloitte’s Shipping & Ports industry group).


Blood-e won the first prize of €15,000 and Tipster11 won the second prize of €10,000.  


“The Squeeze” #4 was complemented with exciting Pre-Squeeze events and trainings, taking place a day before “The Squeeze”.  


The competition wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our Lead Donor, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation!
