evenTIZ is a series of short online live stories where distinguished people from around the globe share their stories and knowledge. evenTIZ is addressed not only to start-up founders, but also to all those who are interested in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship.
The innovation of this AIZ initiative lies in the fact that these short events [15′ TALK + 10′ Q&A] aim to inspire all the restless business minds of our country and offer substantial and gathered knowledge through a direct and indirect conventional way that brings the audience closer to the speaker. evenTIZ Live Stories started in December 2020 hosting the Greek alpha geek, Apostolos (Tolis) Lerios, who spoke at the 1st evenTIZ on December 16th, 2020.
The evenTIZ Live Stories always take place on Wednesdays and at least once a month at a specific time [17: 00-17:25 EET]. Participation is entirely FREE and open to the public!
Stay tuned for our next evenTIZ!
