What does the Reload Greece Young Entrepreneurs programme consist of?

Over the course of the academic year as a young entrepreneur you get access to:
  • A network of like-minded people.
  • A series of inspiring presentations from successful entrepreneurs they can relate to.
  • Workshops designed to get you thinking about creating a business idea that will benefit your community.
  • Two months 1:1 mentoring that help you further develop your business ideas.
  •  Introduction to partners who can provide more specialised advice and funding.
  • A strong network of role models of connected entrepreneurs.
  • Educational content developed by London Business School.
At the end of the process, you get a chance to pitch your developed business idea to a panel of investors
in order to win top prizes.

What will you gain?

Top Prizes

For those that pitch their ideas to our panel of investors, we have top prizes to help you as a young entrepreneur turn the idea you have been working on during the programme into a reality.
We know that the most important things for a new start up are a cash injection and further support and education, so our prizes include cash awards, and free access to our RG Challenge accelerator programme.

Inspiration

You can learn so much from those who have already been in your shoes.  During this programme, you will have an opportunity to hear about the life stories of those who have succeeded in business over the past few years in the countries
most hit by the recession (such as Greece, Portugal or Spain).  You will get a chance to meet and get inspired by innovators who straddle national geographical boundaries.

Education

Throughout the programme, a series of training workshops, group work and seminars
will be delivered by top professionals in order to encourage you to develop a different set of skills.

Support

Reload Greece provides a safe environment to meet people from all backgrounds, express new ideas, listen to others, learn, discuss,
whilst becoming a part of an active community.
The Reload Greece team and mentors are always there to offer you, ongoing support.

Become a Reload Greece Ambassador.

We recruit a team of student Ambassadors to help us arrange local University based events
that attract University students, alumni, and young people in the local ecosystem.

The idea is to bring together a community of young people who are interesting in entrepreneurship.
We then inspire, coach and assist them to develop early stage business ideas.

If interested, what happens next?
If you’re interested in getting involved as an ambassador, then we’d love to hear from you.
