Announcing the 10 Aspiring Entrepreneurial Teams Whose Ideas Will Spark the 2nd ACS Athens OPEN

Apr 23, 2024 | News

After a meticulous review of the 20 applications submitted, 10 ideas have been chosen to progress to the next phase of ACS Athens OPEN.
The 2nd ACS Athens OPEN is a program that will empower our students to identify innovative solutions on campus that pushes the boundaries of sustainability, enhance the learning experience, and promote conscious citizenship.
ACS Athens OPEN is more than just an idea – it’s a movement that’s all about inspiring and supporting Middle School and Academy students in grades 7-10 who are passionate about making a difference. With the right tools and mentorship, they’ll have the opportunity to bring their ideas to life, and even turn them into potential startups!

We commend and are impressed by ALL participants, including the following students who submitted the selected ideas and will be advancing:

  • Oliver Lewis, Natalia Papadoglou, Constantine Kechriotis, James Tsunis and Zenon Popotas
  • Charalampos Mikropoulos and Stefanos Vranakis
  • Vassiliki Drakou
  • Amaryllis Christou, Themis Christou, and Avra Petrou
  • Maya Rashid
  • Danai Markouli
  • Yichuan Zhang and Alex Wang
  • Maya Mohanram Martinez
  • Charalampos Antypas and Stavros Antypas
  • Daphne Pergamali and Lili Dryden

We will now work with these students and their concepts, equipping them with the necessary tools and mentorship to bring their ideas to fruition. They stand to receive up to €2,000 in investment funding to develop prototypes.
Throughout the course of the year, the selected participants will experience various aspects of the natural entrepreneurial process, from ideation to setbacks, evolution of team dynamics, pivoting to other ideas, onboarding new team members or even realizing that entrepreneurship may not be the right fit.
To maximize this opportunity, we urge mentors from our community to step forward and guide and inspire these budding leaders. Please sign up using this FORM and join a movement that will shape tomorrow’s world.
Congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated in this thrilling endeavor!
