IDEA (Innovate, Develop, Excel, Accomplish) Programme

We co-founded the IDEA, an innovation programme to assist start-ups and young businesses

During May 2015, we announced the establishment of the IDEA Programme. The IDEA is a new office area that offers support to start-ups with free accom-modation, support, training and advice in order to become self-sustainable in the market.

It is housed in the most central and most scenic spot of the capital, the Bank of Cyprus building in Faneromeni in the old city of Nicosia. It has been renovated and turned into an ideal place with a practical and contempo-rary décor, equipped with the necessary office equipment and technology.

The aims of the IDEA are:

  • to help young businesses and entrepreneurs flourish and thrive
  • to enhance and support the entrepreneurial spirit and culture of innovation in Cyprus, and
  • to help grow the eco-system of innovation in Cyprus

The Programme was co-founded with the CIIM (Cyprus International Institute of Management).
