VentureGarden Athens, Alba's idea accelerator will be kicking off early October! We are looking for committed entrepreneurs who either have a new business idea or are looking to transform their existing business. Having worked with over 380 aspiring entrepreneurs since 2014 in Athens, the program is designed to become a personalized guide to entrepreneurship.
The program is free of charge and is delivered in Greek!
VentureGarden starts with a targeted training phase that will introduce participants to the key elements of entrepreneurial action. The intensive program consists of 8 classes based on the Value Proposition concept, and focuses on market research and understanding customer/user needs (Problem-Solution Fit). Following the training phase, interested and committed participants receive support from experienced mentors to achieve specific goals that lasts up to 3 months.
Following the program's motto "Helping People Grow Ideas", we welcome all individuals passionate about entrepreneurship who have a strong sense of dedication. You can join VentureGarden regardless of your age, sex, origin, and background.
VentureGarden launched in February 2014. It is delivered in Athens by Alba Graduate Business School, The American College of Greece. The program's founding sponsor is The Hellenic Initiative.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions the program will be offered online, using both synchronous and asynchronous training and networking tools. In case it is safe, short sessions for smaller groups will be held at Alba's downtown Athens campus.
Apply here (in Greek). Applications are open until September 13.
