About this event

We have got together some of the most innovative and successful Cypriot founders to talk about their journey and success stories in a panel discussion. If you are running your own local business or thinking of starting a new business, then this panel discussion is perfect for you. In this panel discussion, we have with us Marios Neofytou (Founder of HAIR ETC.), Kristina Apostolou (Fonder of Raising Gastronomes), Lefteris Mohianakis (Managing Director of The 'Anama Concept) hosted by Hess Adnani (SG Cyprus Chapter Director).

Our panel will cover deep discussions about how to start innovative local businesses, avoid common mistakes, operate and maintain businesses, acquire your ideal customers, scale and grow, and many more topics. There will be a live Q&A after the talks to give you a chance to ask your question.

This is not all! We will have a networking gathering (with Covid-19 guidelines) to meet one another and create valuable connections. The tickets are free, and we would love to see you all on the 21st of October at 7:30 PM at the University of Nicosia's Cinestudio!

About Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Month

This month Startup Grind is celebrating DEI month, presented with SVB and supported by Comcast NBCUniversal LIFT Labs. DEI stands for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; 31 days to emphasize the importance of diversity across our global startup ecosystem, and what it means to all of us. We are so excited to take this time to recognize and amplify the voices of leaders in our globally diverse communities, providing a platform for those that may not have been heard previously.

In addition to this event, you can also view Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Month events taking place across our global startup community here or register for our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit here.
