Students and new entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to take part in a ‘marathon’ of creativity and launch their startup at sea.
For four consecutive days they will be able to develop their business ideas while sailing in the Aegean Sea under the CruiseInn, a cruise trip for young entrepreneurship organized by the “ThinkBiz,” the first Economic University of Athens student entrepreneurship association and the Celestyal Cruise.
“Through this entertaining experience that will offer the trip to the Aegean and the Greek islands we aim to give the tools, the people, the training and the money prizes that will help the participants to turn a business idea into a sustainable start up,” said the head of ThinkBiz Lenia Miltiadous to ANA-MPA.
The cruiseship Celestyal Olympia, from May 16 to May 20 and October 17 to October 21, will become a ship of creativity. The ship will sail from Piraeus port for Mykonos, Kusadasi, Patmos, Rhodes, Heraklio and Santorini. Each trip will host 30 participants and will have a different theme.
During the first cruise, participants will work on the development of ideas on the sectors of tourism and culture while the second cruise will focus on the sectors of food, beverages and gastronomy. “We believe that the creation of new enterprises with innovative and technological characteristics may become a financial crisis exit model for students, graduates and new entrepreneurs of Greece,” said Miltiadous.
The participants will be selected through an evaluation process. Those interested can send their applications to getcruiseinn.com.
Cruiseinn 2016 is held under the auspices of the Economy Ministry, the Hellenic Professionals Informatics Society and Blue Growth.
