The Stelios Award for Young Entrepreneur of the Year in Greece 2009

19th November 2009

On 19th November, Stelios Haji-Ioannou, founder of easyJet and serial entrepreneur announced the winners of the Stelios Award for Young Entrepreneur of the Year in Greece - 2009.

The prize, administrated by the ALBA Business School in Athens, is worth €50,000 and will help to give the winners, ZooBYTES at zoo.gr, the funding they need to enable their business to grow.

While Greece has a proud history of business dynasties, it is less well known for small entrepreneurial businesses - particularly those entrepreneurs starting at any early age, as Stelios himself did with the founding of easyJet when he was 28 years old.

Commenting on the awards, Stelios said:
"In difficult times, it becomes even more important for promising entrepreneurs to have access to funding. When I was 28, I was fortunate enough to have my father's support when I set up my first entrepreneurial business. I want to provide that same support to today's young entrepreneurs."

"I've been very impressed at the standard and enthusiasm of these entrepreneurs and their applications - I'm confident that the €50,000 will be going to a good home."
