Green Start-Up Innovation Weekend

On the weekend of 2nd - 3rd March, you will have the opportunity to experience the creation of a real start-up, under the guidance of Dr Pano Kroko. Dr Kroko is the current Chairman of the global Environmental Parliament, as well as an Angel Investor, a Renewable Energy Finance Innovator and an Environmental Politics and Economics Leader.

Dr Kroko has taken this Innovation Master Class to the world's top schools for more than ten years now, including Stanford University Engineering School, Harvard and MIT in Boston, the University of Washington and Beijing Tsinghua University. Now he brings it to ESCP Europe's London campus.

The Start-Up Master Class has spawned more than 200 successful companies and it is a must for aspiring and technically-able individuals interested in green-related topics, innovation and the proliferation of innovative practices throughout organisations.

Venture Capital and Private Equity representatives will be also attending and will work closely with the students, helping to make the financing case for innovative start-ups. Confirmed attendees include Sir Ronald Cohen from Bridges Ventures and Mike Risman, CEO of Venture Partnership Foundation.  Best ideas might even be funded by Dr Kroko and his Venture Capital and Private Equity network.

Individuals with real entrepreneurial spirit and aspirations are encouraged to apply.
