The "Stelios Awards for Young Entrepreneurs in Cyprus 2023" are the first event on the island, following the corresponding awards in Greece which have been held since 2008. The "Stelios Awards for Young Entrepreneurs" aim to become an institution in Cyprus and to be established at the same time as and the Stelios Bi-Communal Awards, which have been rewarding Bi-Communal Business Partnership since 2009 and which will continue with the next award date in March 2024.
Applicants for the Young Entrepreneurship Awards must be under 35 years of age and have established a company in the Republic of Cyprus within the last 5 years. Young entrepreneurs of any nationality are also eligible to participate in the awards.
Sir Stelios Hatziioannou, referring to the newly established institution of the Youth Entrepreneurship Awards, characteristically stated: "Young people are the future of our economy, but Start-Ups are also the cornerstone for building a productive and dynamically developing country. That is why I consider the establishment of these awards to support young entrepreneurship to be particularly important. By the time I was 35 I had already started two major start-ups, but as I always say, I was lucky because I had funding from my father. So I wish good luck to all the youngsters of today with or without a rich dad!
