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.
Bringing American Masterpieces to the City of Thessaloniki
As part of the celebrations for the U.S. Honored Country at the Thessaloniki International Fair 2018, the U.S. Embassy in Greece is thrilled to present the American Art Everywhere exhibition. Starting on September 7, Thessaloniki will be filled with artwork by prominent and diverse American artists. The pieces will be seen all over town, from the airport to the port to the City Hall… even on the buses crisscrossing the city.
