In his speech, he stressed the importance of the transition from necessity entrepreneurship to innovative entrepreneurship since only the latter can provide added value and give the national economy a competitive edge, leading our country to development.
IST College's aim is the development of an environment which supports, encourages and cultivates modern entrepreneurship, promotes and produces new, innovative ideas which will contribute towards the improvement of our country's growth, the promotion of innovation, spread of an entrepreneurial mentality and increase of employability. The aforementioned aim is achieved via programmes of studies corresponding to the needs of the Greek market, via continuous enrichment of courses in collaboration with businesses, but also via a plethora of activities, such as the organization of a series of events for students (seminars, talks, conferences, educational visits, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Competition Crazy Business Ideas, etc.), but also via collaborations with the Athens and the Piraeus Chamber of Commerce and Industry, with which IST has signed a Memorandum of Understanding aiming at improving competition among Greek businesses and the Greek economy in general and to enhance the business environment in Greece.
