CampusBus, the entrepreneurship project run by The Cube Athens, Greece’s most successful co-working space and business incubator is running a new crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to run a new series of free training workshops throughout Greece.
The project, launched almost 2 years ago and covered by GreekReporter, had visited cities all around Greece and presented its program of activities to over 2,000 people. The last series of the project was funded by the US State Department and this time the project is going it alone and hoping to raise funds through crowdfunding based on the huge success record it had achieved in its last run.

Stavros Messinis, founder of The Cube wrote on the project’s Indiegogo page:
“Maria and I are founders of The Cube, Greece’s biggest co-working space and business incubator – we see a lot of awesome people come though our ecosystem, they’re building businesses, taking care of themselves, solving problems for the world, generating jobs, generating income ánd generally being good citizens.
About a year ago, we were asked by some of our sponsors and supporters to extend our works impact beyond Greece’s capital, Athens – So, we decided to rent a bus and take a few good trainers on a journey throughout Greece, going from village to village, from town to town – teaching people about entrepreneurship, about finance, about modern marketing, about new technologies and about good citizenship. We showed case studies of great businesses and how some people have used the comparative advantages of the area they lived in to generate businesses. We visited 12 towns and cities over a 5 month period, we impacted over 2000 people and the results were great. We ran 7 workshops in each town which were very well attended and these people had very little regarding entrepreneurship being offered in their areas and we did our bit to push them a little along their entrepreneurial journey.”
“We’re raising money through Indiegogo to fund the next round of our journey — The money you pledge will go toward covering hiring of a bus, travel expenses for our trainers, educational materials and of course, covering the expense of hiring our trainers again.
We believe entrepreneurship can be the single most impactful answer to Greece’s problems right now. We need people to create jobs, to create their way out of this crisis — to do this, we need to help them discover their greatness, their potential and the potential of the places they live in,” he added.
