On October 18th, Mr. Paminos Kyrkinis, founder of e-Food, and Mr. Stephan Clambaneva, Partner at PARK kicked off a series of mentor sessions with ACS Athens OPEN participants to discuss “Developing Startup Concepts” during the first specially-curated mentor sessions.
During the session, Mr. Kyrkinis and Mr. Clambaneva described the process of a start-up, what is needed to move the idea forward and key things entrepreneurs should have to be able to transition from idea to start up.
As they considered their path from idea to startup, students learned that:
Developing an innovative idea requires patience, takes time and will likely involve failure
As an entrepreneur, you must surround yourself with a network of people that support you and your vision
The road to a successful startup can appear daunting; set up a series of achievable goals to get you to your destination and embed stable development in your process
Many thanks to Mr. Paminos Kyrkinis and Mr. Stephan Clambaneva for sharing their time and expertise as ACS Athens OPEN mentors!
The students were excited to learn from the stories you shared and tips you offered!
