Mindspace is a non-profit organization founded in 2015 by Greek university students and young alumni with a purpose - To see more ideas proceed from the academic environment to serve society.
Who we work with
I have worked with the Mindspace team for several years, and I have been absolutely floored by their excellent organization skills, pulling the community together for well-run events which attract high-level sponsors and mentors. Most of all, I love working with them because they are so enthusiastic and positive, always full of energy and eager to learn.
Ioannina was the perfect fit for the Mindspace Challenge, a pitching competition supported by the Embassy that gives young entrepreneurs the opportunity to turn their ideas into reality, learn crucial presentation skills, and network with similar minded students from around the region. These young minds I met in Ioannina represented Greece’s tremendous human capital and unshakable entrepreneurial spirit.
Mindspace is the first serious effort in Greece to organize university graduates around entrepreneurship. In a short period of time, Mindspace has created its own niche in the entrepreneurial startup eco-system with partners ranging from the US Embassy to The People’s Trust and universities across Greece whose students would not otherwise have had the opportunity to get involved in business – and ultimately for some, become entrepreneurs.
