Is there a way out of a financial crisis?
Of course I am not the expert to answer that. Even they do not know, but reality is that Greece is in its 3rd+ straight year of recession with no apparent time plan for economic recovery. A lot of people are losing their jobs each month with the young people experiencing more pain. Amongst them is the range of people between 30-45 that found their “known” paths of working “destroyed” or going to be. It’s happening in Greece and elsewhere. There’s an imminent financial meltdown, but if that’s not the best way to ‘not let a good crisis go unexploited’, then I don’t know what is.
Realizing the need and also the existence of alternative options, more and more people have decided to take the plunge and become entrepreneurs, distancing themselves from traditional institutions and old ways of “doing” things.
So 1 month ago I took the decision to join the Kauffman FastTrac program that launched Oct 1st in Athens offered by the ALBA Graduate Business School at the American College of Greece andMetavallon, with the support of the US Embassy in Athens, Greece.
And by participating to this, it is already a venture for me…
