Athens Startup Ecosystem

Athens-based startups may score low in investment compared to other major European cities, but the startup ecosystem is growing rapidly. 

In 2022 fintech startup Viva Wallet sold a minority stake to JP Morgan. The company’s valuation was over $2 billion, giving Greece its first unicorn, which now operates in 23 European countries.

Another big deal for the Athens startup scene this year was Meta’s acquisition of the audio plug-in company Accusonus. The sale was for between $70 and $100 million. 

Last year, Greece-based startups received funding for $1 billion, which was double the investment in the previous year. About 80% of that capital went to 10 companies. 

The b2b business model is the most popular amongst Athens founders. The most prominent industry is Life Sciences; 14.8% of startups are in the sector. There is also a steady rise of deep tech and agro tech businesses. 

The Equifund program launched in 2018 has also helped fuel Athens’s growing number of startups. The fund is backed by the Greek government, the European Investment Bank, and European Investment Fund and offered funding to 200 early-stage companies over five years. 

Various Athens-based programs such as ACEin, Athens Incubator, Corallia, i4G, and THEA Incubator provide courses, mentorship, events, access to funding, and talent for founders. The Greek government will continue to back the startup ecosystem to help bridge the gap for early-stage companies.

GrowthMentor was built upon the idea that every situation is unique, so generic courses and blog posts just don’t cut it sometimes.

To actually solve your issue you need to connect with someone who’s “been there done that” and have a back-and-forth conversation about the particular roadblock you are facing at this very moment.

Here are some tips.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be ok with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as openly as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question-asking.
  • Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Use dynamic filters to find the perfect mentor for you with the right expertise, language, time zone, and availability you need.
