With its 2018 business start-up award underway, Envolve embarks on a five-day tour of 13 cities to engage with Greece’s entrepreneurship community.

Athens, April 20th 2018 – The recently launched Greek arm of Envolve (www.EnvolveGlobal.org), the new entrepreneurship support organization established by the Libra Group (www.libra.com), is undertaking a five-day tour, “Next Stop: Entrepreneurship”, visiting Greek cities which have an active and developing business start-up ecosystem. With the 2018 Envolve Award Greece (formerly the Hellenic Entrepreneurship Award) open for applications, Envolve is in search of individuals who have new business ideas or are interested in taking their business to the next level. These businesses may qualify for an award entry or benefit from the Envolve’s provision of entrepreneurship education and resources.

The Envolve Greece team aims to strengthen its engagement with local communities, organizations, start-up and academic representatives in areas outside Athens, where talent, potential and innovative business ideas are emerging.
