As part of the celebrations for the U.S. Honored Country at the 83rd Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF,) Found.ation is organizing, with the support of the U.S. Embassy in Greece, a curated series of programs and events that highlight innovation, technology, and creativity. Under the theme of the American Pavilion at TIF, “Harnessing the Power of Innovation and Creativity,” the Found.ation team is arranging: an Innovation Hub offering workshops, talks, and networking opportunities; the Tech Olympus Summit highlighting the connections between the innovative spirits and cultures found in both Greece and the United States; and an Innovation Bootcamp to inspire and activate Thessaloniki’s talented startup community.
This series of programs and engagements curated by Found.ation aims to promote American innovation, technology, and start-up culture and to highlight U.S. excellence in these fields. These will also be places where entrepreneurs-on-hold (aka first timers) will find inspiration, where technology talent will be born, and where founders will meet their investors and next partners.
