The 2023 EBAN Athens Annual Congress
We are overjoyed to announce that the next destination of our Annual Congress is Athens! Enterprise Greece and EBAN will co-host the Congress on 24-26 April 2023 alongside HeBAN as an official partner. If you are interested in meeting hundreds of early stage investors from all over the world (and we know you are), pre-register to secure your spot!
The exciting announcement was made earlier today on the main stage of the EBAN Cork Annual Congress by EBAN Director of Secretariat Jacopo Losso in company with Georgios Filiopoulos, CEO of Enterprise Greece, the co-organiser of the 2023 Congress, alongside Panayiotis Ketikidis from the Hellenic Business Angels Network.
Jacopo Losso stated “EBAN is very excited to be hosting its first ever Congress in Athens next year. We want our annual conference to celebrate and share with the rest of the world the amazing progress Greece is making in innovation, entrepreneurship and investment. Together with our EBAN members at Enterprise Greece and Hellenic Business Angels Network, we will create impact by building bridges between the Greek startup and early stage investment ecosystem and the rest of the world”.
Georgios Fiiopoulos said the following about the Greek startup ecosystem and the upcoming EBAN Athens Annual Congress: “The explosive rise of the Greek startup ecosystem over the last decade has drawn increasing attention to Greece’s tech potential. Funding for Greek startups more than tripled in 2021, and the first Greek unicorn – Vivawallet − emerged earlier this year in a deal with JP Morgan. Several others look poised to join the club in the near future. In parallel, leading tech multinationals – such as Microsoft, Amazon, NTT Data – are all investing in the country, further solidifying Greece’s position as a flourishing tech & innovation hub in Southeast Europe”
EBAN Board Member and HeBAN Co-Founder, Panayiotis Ketikidis added: “We at HeBAN, the Hellenic Business Angels Network, are proud of our role in bringing Europe’s largest and most recognised international business angel event to Athens. HeBAN has been an active member of EBAN for many years and now is the best time for the international angel community to pay particular attention to the booming Greek start-up and early-stage investment ecosystem!”
We expect to host riveting keynotes from Greece, Europe, and the rest of the world. Many fascinating guests have already been confirmed and we will keep enriching our already captivating agenda in the coming months and keeping you updated.
