Ignite @Reload: Developing Your Idea – Cyprus
November 20, 2019 @ 11:00 - 14:00 EETFree
Are you interested in developing your early-stage business idea while networking with like-minded entrepreneurs from 4 countries?
The Young Entrepreneurs Programme, the flagship pre-accelerator of UK based educational charity Reload Greece, runs across leading universities in the UK, Netherlands, Greece and Cyprus. The programme aims to enable youth (Final year, Masters & PhD students and Researchers) and young professionals to develop business ideas with a positive socio-economic impact on their home counties.

IGNITE (workshops in each location, where we source business ideas)
