Greek_Awards_2017_logoA 24% INCREASE SINCE LAST YEAR

RECORD NUMBER OF 89 APPLICATIONS RECEIVED 



The application submission for Stelios Awards for Young Entrepreneurs of the Year 2017 in Greece held by Sir Stelios Haji-ioannou, founder of easyJet, of easyGroup and Stelios Philanthropic Foundation, has ended.

 

For yet another year, the number of applications submitted marked an increase, this time reaching a 24% rise, compared to the 2016 Awards, with a total of 89 applications received from businesses all over Greece which meet the award criteria and specifications. The impressive year-to-year submission increase and the broad scope of the participants’ business activity, validate the firm recognition and importance that the Awards have gained from young entrepreneurs in Greece. 


Stelios Haji-ioannou has stated, regarding the Awards: «The fact that while Greece goes through a crisis, so many young people dare to start their own business instead of remaining unemployed, is very impressive and hopeful. Well done to them! These people are the ones who will create new jobs and help the country to overcome the crisis».


In 2017, for once more, the Stelios Awards give the opportunity to Greek entrepreneurs to dare, to innovate and stand out in this difficult, financially, period, supporting at the same time their vision and their ambitions.

The selection process, in which Sir Stelios Haji-ioannou participates actively himself, has already begun. The shortlist of the 40 Businesses that have excelled in this process and will attend the actual Award Ceremony which will take place on the 16th of May 2017, will be announced in the following days. During the ceremony, the final 8 winners for 2017 will be announced. This year’s Awards will offer a total of €100.000. The first winner will win the amount of €30.000 and the 7 additional winners will receive €10.000 each.

Overall, until today, a total of 16 businesses have been awarded, 8 of which were announced as winners in 2016. To specify, amongst 67 candidates, a record number until last year, Sun of a Beach was announced as the big winner, receiving the amount of €30.000. Seven additional companies got awarded in the same year, with the amount of €10.000 each. These companies are: Agnotis, Apifon, Glowbox, Isostevia, Mermix, Finest Roots and Sleed.
