3rd Greek Business and Arts Festival
The Hellenic Community of Ireland (HCI) is composed mainly of people with Greek and Cypriot origin, Irish-Greek families and families where both partners are Greek.
The Greek Business and Arts Festival is primarily an immersion process into Irish Society for all those people as well as an opportunity to learn how to do business in Ireland. Its purpose is to:
- Network Greek and Cypriot artists residing in Ireland
- Network businesses by Greeks and Cypriots residing in Ireland
- Expose both categories to the public
- Connect Greek and Irish Businesses from Greece, Cyprus and Ireland
- Match the Irish Know-how to do business with the entrepreneurial gift of Greeks
HCI Entrepreneurship “Passport to business”
HCI is working with Bolton Trust and the Institute of Minority Entrepreneurship, DIT, to train as many Greek entrepreneurs as possible. We provide The Guinness Enterprise Center as the next step in order to nourish and support start ups.
HCI is also looking at the opportunities that the economy in Greece offers for entrepreneurs and how the Irish experience can be transferred. We work with different bodies to that effect including the Irish Embassy in Athens.
HCI would like to create a measurable social impact that can be scaled all over Ireland. We have local representatives/volunteers that provide practical help to other co patriots. HCI aspires to be the model for other communities.
