23 MAY 2016 / Inauguration of the new premises of Orange Grove with the SNF support

On Thursday, May 19th, the Orange Grove held the inauguration event of their new offices which were constructed thought an exclusive grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The new premises will host the incubator’s most advanced startups, covering the increasing demands of entrepreneurs.

The opening event gathered Orange Grove’s supporters, donors and partners, while the ribbon was jointly cut by H.E the Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Athens and Mr. George Agouridis, Member of the SNF Board of Directors.

The SNF supports the operation of Orange Grove incubator and, specifically, its educational program, the establishment of a series of pitching competitions “The Squeeze”, which allow startups to access pre-seeding funding, as well as the creation of an online educational toolset.

Launched in September 2013, Orange Grove constitutes a flexible workspace for young entrepreneurs. It was set up with the initiative of the Netherlands Embassy in Athens and supported by the Dutch-Greek business community, in an effort to contribute to the growth of Greece’s start-up ecosystem. Orange Grove offers a workplace, educational and networking programs, mentoring and coaching, legal/accounting and cost pricing advice to startups, in order to help them successfully establish or grow their business. The SNF has been one the lead supporters of the organization since its establishment.
