Out of 1,100 applicants, 3 Greek businesses have each received a Hellenic Entrepreneurship Award at the awards ceremony at the Onassis Cultural Center in Athens.

The businesses, which include Blueground, Bubbllz, and Raymetrics, received their awards from Prokopios Pavlopoulos, the President of the Hellenic Republic. The 3 business represent a range of sectors, from hospitality to social media marketing to meteorology.

The winning companies will share prize funding of 1.250.000 euros, be provided with an expert mentor and a range of business support services including legal, accounting, marketing, IT, communications and HR services.

Ongoing support by the HEA and its partners — helping these start-ups to implement their business plans successfully — is an integral part of the award programme’s mission to identify and encourage Greece’s most promising new business ventures.

The announcement of the 2016 results brings the total number of winners to 14 since the award programme was launched by the Libra Group on behalf of The Hellenic Initiative (THI) in 2012, which has committed 10 million euros to the programme.

The Hellenic Entrepreneurship Award was founded in order to stimulate entrepreneurial spirit by supporting Greece’s most promising new businesses. Between one and five winners are declared each year.
