Sign the startup manifesto of Greece
The idea of the manifesto originates from two meetings that VP N. Kroes had in Athens with stakeholders of the Greek Startup community (in January and in March 2014). It aims to improve the environment for startup entrepreneurship in our country, unleash the creative forces of Greece by removing the barriers to the growth of startups, the creation of a more business-friendly environment. The manifesto could assist in identifying and then raising the most significant of the barriers faced by entrepreneurs in Greece today and hopefully to position Greece as a country of innovation. The application of policies that will support innovation-oriented SMEs and startups has the potential to lead to an increase of the Greek GDP by €4bn, the creation of 32.000 direct and indirect job openings and the reversal of brain drain.
