Kristian Papadakis

Mentoring Lead


Kristian was part of the Reload Greece community for over four years before moving into the role of Mentoring Lead in January 2020. He first got involved as a participant in the 2016 RG Bootcamp in Athens, following which he became a volunteer and then a mentor for the charity. With a professional background advising a range of organisations for more than five years – from SMBs to the European Commission – he has a wealth of insight to offer the community.

Kristian has significant knowledge and experience in the start-up sector, with a particular interest in technology, and a passion for mentoring others through their journeys. A large part of his motivation is due to the fact that Kristian is an entrepreneur and has gone through the RG experience himself, having founded his own company following his participation in the RG Bootcamp.

“Reload Greece is a truly amazing organisation, with so many passionate people doing so much positive work out of the goodness of their hearts and their belief that through entrepreneurship we can build a brighter future for generations to come.”
