Join Alba in Sparti for 5 days of entrepreneurial events, workshops and discussions.
Alba Graduate Business School, with the support of The Hellenic Initiative, will be visiting Sparti with the recently expanded GreenHouse project. Alba’s entrepreneurship center AHEAD (Alba Hub for Entrepreneurship and Development) has designed a week long schedule of open events that will bring entrepreneurship closer to the city’s community.
GreenHouse Sparti will take place from October 8 to 12 at different venues throughout the city. The detailed schedule may be found here (in Greek) and it includes workshops supporting business owners in understanding the role of digital tools in business growth, gamified social entrepreneurship sessions for high school students, informative discussions with university students and the project’s flagship two day GreenHouse Workshop for idea stage entrepreneurs. For this two day workshop idea holders need to register here. All activities will be held in Greek, are free of charge and open to the public.
Each GreenHouse project is co-created with local partners and entrepreneurship champions, both organizations and individuals. In Sparti, the Alba team will be working with the Sparti Tech Lab at the Central Public Library, the University of the Peloponnese and the grassroots team of Activate Now. At the same time, the Municipality of Sparti and the Laconia Chamber of Commerce and Industry are supporting this effort.
GreenHouse events are organized in cities throughout Greece with the ultimate goal of supporting entrepreneurs, both acting and aspiring. They consist of free of charge events and workshops that bring together passionate community members. At the same time, GreenHouse introduces entrepreneurial thinking to students and vulnerable groups.
GreenHouse is part of Alba’s entrepreneurship outreach program VentureGarden that has supported over 420 entrepreneurs in southern Greece since 2014. It was co-created with the American College of Thessaloniki that runs the program in Northern Greece. The Hellenic Initiative was the founding and sole sponsor of the program for the first 5 years.
