Open Coffee Athens XV, the call

Tuesday, October 7th, 6 o’clock in the afternoon, at Bios. 4 exceptional talks, a couple of hundreds people from the best and brightest of the greek start-up scene and a presence that worths, well, an event on its own. The 15th meeting of Open Coffee Athens is -I dare to say- a must event, you just can’t miss that! Here goes the details:

  • Speakers
    • Elias Politakis, founder, will demo (right in our mobiles) the innovative wireless services of MobileFX, aiming at both the enterprise and entertainment markets. What’s more, Elias will give his (sharp!) views on do’s and don’ts about start-upping in Greece.
    • Michael Rizos, New Digital Media Manager of the one-month old MTV Greece will present, two days after the big event in Kallimarmaro stadium, his beliefs on new media and the music industry at large, as well as the ideas of implementing these in MTV Greece.
    • Mr. Kyriakos Mitsotakis, among others an ex-consultant of Alpha Ventures and Managing Director of NBG Venture Capital, will contribute his personal expertise about raising money and entrepreneurship in general, giving an apolitical speech that we are clearly honored to host.
    • Having Jason Calacanis as our guest is just amazing, to say the least. Jason needs no introduction and he will inspire us about the things he’s among the most qualified people around the globe to talk about: the passion for technology and entrepreneurship.  
  • WhereBios, Peiraios 84, downtown Athens, in a rural, ex-industrial but trendy downtown area, the perfect host of the start-up culture (View Map). Join us in the bar for the pre-coffees and the after-beers and in the theatre for the speeches.
