Youth Entrepreneurship in Europe (Cypriot Enterprise Link)
European Business Angels Network (CYBAN)
Clean Launchpad EU (Chrysalis Leap)Objective: To showcase how Europe can effectively help startups and also how Europe is connected in terms of entrepreneurship

Warm up:
I write this article from a personal standpoint and as a reply to all those good folks, who regard the entrepreneurial growth in Cyprus as slow moving. You see if you examine things at the macro level, you will come to realize that this little Mediterranean dot has made tremendous leaps in entrepreneurial development during the recent years, despite its economic meltdown and political turbulence.

A personal view on CEL's journey over time, its milestones and the most valuable lesson learned.

Nicosia October 3rd 2013: The Cyprus Business Angels Network (CYBAN) and the Cypriot Enterprise Link (CEL) today jointly announced a new affiliation between the two networks.

Cyprus. A New Start Up Nation.

Note: The article was prepared for and published in the December issue of Legacy Magazine.

The success stories of Cypriot entrepreneurs are neither new nor something unordinary - Ranging from giants, such as Sir Stelios Hadjioannou to the younger generation of Xenios Thrasyvoulou, founder of PeoplePerHour, which currently runs on a $7.32 million venture funding (CrunchBase). Indeed, Cyprus has its fair share of talent - conquering the world, creating, innovating and leaving a legacy. But what about entrepreneurship at the local level – what happens within the Cypriot boundaries?
