A few days ago the Techcrunch Meetup Athens event took place in the Museum of Benaki (#tcathens or #tcath, fotos from vrypan here), with more than 400 attendees from the startup community of Greece. The event was organized by Niko Bonatso and Alexia Tsotsis, with the support of OpenCoffee and Microsoft Innovation Center in Athens among others and there were different panels on startup founders, ecosystem builders – where I had the privilege of participating- and VC investors.

Την Παρασκευή είχα την χαρά να συμμετέχω ως ομιλητής στην προσυνεδριακή εκδήλωση του VC Forum 2011 (http://11.vcforum.gr/11/pressroom) , στην οποία έγιναν και τα εγκαίνια του Thermi – Link (http://www.thermi-link.com/).
