The Embassy of Finland in Cyprus and Startup Cyprus invite you to the launch event presentation of the #Startups4Peace program, on Thursday 1 June 2017 at 5:30p.m., at Γκαραζ, (Ammochostou 16, Nicosia).
Startups4Peace aims to bring together people with business ideas from both communities in Cyprus. The program will provide motivation, knowledge and the means to build and grow new business ventures.
The objective is to encourage innovative startup entrepreneurship with an intercommunal vision in Cyprus, to bring together and increase contacts between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot startup communities and to support young entrepreneurs in developing their businesses.
In a time of fast-paced changes and need of modern and innovative ideas, Startups4Peace is evolving into a competition and mini-acceleration program. Startups4Peace is organized by the Embassy of Finland and Startup Cyprus in cooperation with the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Turkish Cypriot Chamber of Commerce.
The winners of the Startups4Peace program will participate in Slush, the leading European startup event, taking place in Helsinki, Finland, in November 30 - December 1 2017.
