LIMASSOL, Cyprus, Oct. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CyprusInno has announced the beta launch of its platform, cyprusinno.com, which offers the island's very first bicommunal online community collaboration where like-minded entrepreneurs and problem-solvers from both sides of the island can come together to promote economic growth and opportunity, entrepreneurship, and regional peace.
With its platform, the CyprusInno team has masterminded a new model that connects innovative thinkers within a network that offers vast resources to inspire and motivate freethinking and change.
"I believe in economic freedom and entrepreneurial capital as tools for peace and prosperity," said Steven W. Stavrou, CyprusInno co-founder. "Aside from being an important driver of economic development, entrepreneurship is also an instrumental peace-building mechanism."
The CyprusInno platform seamlessly delivers a dynamic portfolio of features including a community for members to connect and find co-founders, advisors, investors, and others, a startup job board, and an events calendar. Furthermore, the CyprusInno team has introduced Challenges, a forum that gives Cypriot innovators the chance to weigh in on challenges faced by the entire island. Registered users can pose challenges, propose solutions to open challenges, and comment and vote on solutions to collaborate and solve island-wide issues.
CyprusInno also stands as the largest database of startups in Cyprus and the first and only project to map startups on either side of the island, both north and south, bringing a whole new level of entrepreneurial community to Cyprus. In addition to startups, the map also includes incubators/accelerators, technology and research centers, and island-wide collaborations. The team behind CyprusInno recognizes that entrepreneurs hold the key to Cyprus' future, and the site aims to support startups across the region with a single, easy-to-use platform for connectivity and collaboration with a mission to connect and lift Cyprus through entrepreneurship and innovation, and to further engage peacefully both north and south communities.
CyprusInno views the 2013 financial crisis as a major driving force behind the island's entrepreneurial revolution, and the platform has been designed to give millennial entrepreneurs and other innovators a place where they can work together to reclaim the Cyprus Dream and lead Cyprus on the global stage.
"Entrepreneurs drive technological, social, and political innovation by challenging what exists and asking, 'What's next?' It is this very essence that will lead Cyprus, an island divided for over 42 years, to join together towards a new future," said Stavrou.
The CyprusInno team sees the platform as a model that could be replicated across the eastern Mediterranean region using entrepreneurship and innovation to foster peace and economic prosperity.
CyprusInno is the first bicommunal online platform connecting Cypriot entrepreneurs. Cyprus is on the brink of an entrepreneurial renaissance, and it is our goal to connect its dreamers, innovators, and entrepreneurs throughout neighborhoods and across borders to help build a better, more peaceful future for the island. Through entrepreneurship and innovation, we present to the world a unified Cyprus, and showcase its innovative startups.
