  • MIT Enterprise Forum Greece invites members of the technology entrepreneurship community to come together for a series of workshops and events titled “Build the Community” designed to help bring entrepreneurs, investors and others together and help them succeed!

    The four-day program runs from April 3 through April 8 and includes workshops for technology entrepreneurs and investors combined with community and networking events. All workshops and events will be held at the Eugenides Foundation.

    The “Build the Community” program is designed to bring together the people who are working to build a local entrepreneurship cluster and to accelerate its growth.You have to make difficult decisions long before you have enough information to know whether you are making the right ones. And you are gambling on technology that may not be proven. Being part of a community committed to entrepreneurship can make a big difference to you:

    • When you are trying to make a decision, mentors can help you choose a smart path.

    • When you are proven right, you want to share your success with people who understand.

    • If you are wrong, peers and mentors can provide fresh perspectives on solutions.

  • April 3rd & 4th: “Perfect Pitch” workshop 

    Entrepreneurs are invited to participate in the “Perfect Pitch” workshop, a two-day program focused on real-time learning and implementation. Morning sessions are focused on understanding ten critical startup business issues. Afternoons are dedicated to additional implementation and coaching.

    Participants in the “Perfect Pitch” workshop are invited to deliver a one-minute pitch to an audience of people who are interested in joining a startup team. Participants are encouraged to connect during a networking sessions after the pitches. This event is open to anyone in the community.

    April 7th: “How to Pick a Startup” workshop 

    Investors new to the world of high tech startups are exposed to a different level of risk and benefit than in more traditional investments. Fortunately, technical expertise is not essential. This interactive workshop will provide a simple framework to evaluate a high tech startup for potential investment.
