Startup Safari Athens
Startup Safary is an event that guides its participants through the startup ecosystem of the hosting city. It started back in 2013 in Berlin, Germany from members of the city’s startup ecosystem. The event has expanded to other European cities and from 2014 it is also taking place in Athens, Greece.
Greece has a developing startup culture, with a lot of innovating startups & companies scoring big funding rounds or acquisitions, while many initiatives have started aiming at supporting new entrepreneurs.
