So far it’s been tremendously helpful to me and our organisation. Also, I think both of us are really enjoying it.
I have to say that even being selected to participate in this has already boosted our confidence and given us more incentives and motivation to work harder to make this work.
I am really glad to be in this programme. I made first call with my mentor in the previous week. It was very useful, and I beleive that it will be very useful and positive for my idea. We started out a discussion which was positive and inspiring.
It is a great experience working with Veronika. We meet on a weekly basis at my office (Every monday morning) and we spend 1.5 hours talking and analysing issues, challenges and organizational difficulties they are facing. So far we met 3 times!
Andreas has been very open in trying to understand the specifics of my startup as well as helping me develop it further. We have discussed the market conditions of both North Cyprus and the RoC. In doing so, Andreas has been attentive to the difficulties of launching an enterprise in a society, which is under conditions of lack of contact with the international channels of economy. Mr. Hadjisofocleus has been encouraging me to take more action and promote my startup…He has also been very helpful in introducing me to actors in the South and assisting me with establishing my website.
