Stelios Haji-Ioannou said:
"Four years ago, my only goal was to give something back to society, I started this project in collaboration with the Leshi Epihirimatikotitas, to highlight and promote entrepreneurship in Greece among young people under 40 years of age.

The idea behind this effort is simple: the biggest obstacle to a young person who wants to start his own business is finding the required funding, particularly now in such a difficult economic era for Greece. Consequently, with the prize of 50.000 €, I give the winner an opportunity to further grow his business. "

In 2008 the founders of Simply Burgers won the first annual Stelios Award for their successful customer service in the fast food industry. In 2009 the team of Zoo.gr won the award for their innovative approach to social media and the creation of biggest Greek Web Meeting Point and in 2010 the company Fasmetrics won the award for providing innovative diagnostic electromagnetic measurements.
