The Hellenic Entrepreneurship Award (HEA) offers Greece-based entrepreneurs the chance to receive free consulting and support plus up to €700,000 of funding to support a new business venture. The closing date for the 2014 award has now passed and the process of analysing the 488 business plans submitted is underway. We thank the many entrepreneurs who have participated in this year’s award and look forward to announcing the finalists in April.
The award programme aims to create opportunity for both experienced and budding entrepreneurs by providing winners with the resources they need to get a new business started. The Hellenic Entrepreneurship Award is funded and administered by the Libra Group on behalf of The Hellenic Initiative, a non-profit organisation that is undertaking a number of economic development programs designed to encourage entrepreneurship and investment in Greece. The Libra Group has committed over €7 million to the award.
