Mindspace is an excellent initiative that strengthens the entrepreneurial way of thinking to students and young graduates, exposing them to useful events and speeches and eventually pushing several of them into action.
Founder at Simple Rocks
An ethical act of amazing young individuals coming together to give back to their community, to help young people start their own entrepreneurship journey. That’s what Mindspace Challenge was for me.
The alumni of Mindspace Challenge 2017 & 2018 have already founded 11 new businesses and created 49 new jobs with salary.
We are proud of them.
Participant Challenge Ioannina
Mindspace made me realize I can get involved in the entrepreneurial space myself as a student. I've never been so passionate about building my idea into a business.

Mindspace Challenge has been an eye opening experience that has equipped all the contestants, despite losing or winning the actual competition, with the hard skills to lead innovation and change. An amazing opportunity for anyone who wants to evolve and develop personally or professionally!
Participant Challenge Ioannina
Mindspace for me was a unique experience that broadened my horizons in the field of entrepreneurship and startups. A great team of young people, exceptionally friendly, full of passion and willing to work hard to help. I am enlightened by this experience and more than enthusiastic for all the new fields that I discovered through that.
