Thank You for One Year of CyprusInno!
As 2017 comes to an end, we mark one year of CyprusInno. We have been very fortunate this past year since our launch to have had the opportunity to bring together all Cypriots, from all corners of the island, through entrepreneurship, technology, and innovation, and we have only one group to thank for that, YOU. Thank you, our supporters, our sponsors, our partners, our members and subscribers, our mentors and mentees, our event attendees/participants, in Cyprus and abroad, for your contributions to helping us develop a truly bi-zonal, intercommunal entrepreneurial ecosystem, which in the past year has been marked by an amazing online community of over 1,600 users, 170+ startups/co-working spaces/incubators mapped (both north and south), 120+ startup jobs posted, 240+ listed business events, 20k+ followers across our social media channels, digital projects such as an infographic visual series exploring the economic benefits of a united Cypriot economy, intercommunal business mixers, an entrepreneurship bootcamp, a bi-communal startup mentorship programme, and so much more.
So, what’s next? Our focus in 2018, in addition to expanding upon the initiatives above, will be on education, funding, and public policy. We are so excited for you to see some of what we have planned for the New Year, and we will be launching some of that in the coming months. We welcome you to join our team as we look for developers, marketers, and designers, so please feel free to contact us.
Cyprus is an island full of amazing people who are talented, passionate, perseverant, creative, open-minded, and, above all, peaceful. If there is one thing we have proved over the past year, it is that entrepreneurs are some of the best peace-builders, because we are the same type of people all over the world. The future of Cyprus is in the hands of its entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs drive technological, social, and political innovation by challenging what exists and asking, “what’s next?” It is this very essence that will lead Cyprus, an island divided for over 43 years, to join together towards a new future, and we thank you for joining us on this journey.
Wishing you and your families Happy Holidays and a happy and healthy New Year.
Towards a united Cyprus through entrepreneurship and innovation,
The CyprusInno Team
