09 OCTOBER 2017 / HIGGS celebrates its two-year anniversary with an NGO Fair

On Sunday, October 8th, 2017, the organization HIGGS (Higher Incubator Giving Growth & Sustainability), on the occasion of its two years of operation, held an NGO Fair, a large celebration dedicated to the Greek NGO ecosystem.

HIGGS is an initiative focusing on the organizational capacity building, strengthening the institutional sustainability, as well as on the networking of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) operating in Greece. HIGGS runs as both an accelerator and an incubator for newly established organizations, through educational workshops, various activities and events as well as counseling support programs.

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation is the Founding Donor of HIGGS, which has become a focal reference point and a meeting place for NGOs in Greece.

At the NGO Fair, more than thirty NGOs that have participated in programs carried out by HIGGS, met at the organization’s premises to participate in experiential and interactive workshops, as well as other activities including the Donors’ Speed Dating Event. The Speed Dating event brought together grantmaking foundations and NGOs to initiate acquaintances and to spark potential collaborations.
