Ignite Reload Developing Your Idea - Cyprus cyprusinno event events

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)

ACCELERATE (7 weeks of 1:1 mentoring with dedicated mentors per team & masterclasses with leading tech companies)

PITCH (entrepreneurs present their startup in front of judges at a pitch event in London)
