The Cyprus entrepreneurship competition (CyEC) is a business plan competition designed to help early-stage entrepreneurs transform their ideas into world-changing companies. Participants will have the unique opportunity to develop their ideas, grow their business skills and network through a series of carefully designed workshops by local and international partners, mentoring sessions, and networking events.
Our focus is on sustainable solutions that respond to real and global challenges through entrepreneurship, technology and innovation and have the potential to compete on a global scale.
We are looking for ambitious teams who want to develop their ideas quickly and who are both agile and adaptive in pursuit of finding the best problem-solution and product-market fit.
