IEEE Cyprus EN Annual Elections – EXCOM 2016 – 2017

by Jake T.

Dear EN members and friends,

IEEE Cyprus Entrepreneurs Network (EN) was established in January 2013 and is a voluntary effort that aims to trigger entrepreneurship in Cyprus and help people interested in it to get networked and find valuable team members in order to create technological start-ups.

More specifically it intends to bring together IEEE members and other professionals (non-members who are working or who are educated in an IEEE designated field – which are all fields of Engineering, Computer Sciences and Information Technology, Physical Sciences, Biological and Medical Sciences, Mathematics, Technical Communications, Education, Management, Law and Policy) in order to cooperate with electrical or electronic engineers in Cyprus and abroad, so that they come up with an innovative product or service that can be exploited commercially.

Every January the elections for EN’s Executive Committee (EXCOM) take place. The composition of EN’s EXCOM is the following: Chair, Vice Chairperson, Secretary and Program Director. Any additional EN volunteers will have the opportunity to take part in the EXCOM’s meetings and help as much actively as they wish in order to meet EN’s goals and to implement the organisation of our events and initiatives. You can refer in this link: http://linkd.in/1nHUUlx to see in detail EN’s goals and objectives.

Therefore, I would like to announce the annual elections for EN’s Executive Committee (EXCOM). You can send an e-mail at cyprusen@ieee.org with your declarations of interest for the elections together with a .pdf form of your CV by January 29, 2016.

In order for EN’s goals and activities to be fulfilled there need to be several volunteers who contribute in our efforts.

Some of the responsibilities that an EXCOM member / volunteer in EN might undertake are the following:

• Creating and editing videos of events or promotional videos,
• Updating EN’s websites with content relevant to the interests of its members,
• Promoting EN through Social Media,
• Finding suitable programmes that are announced in IEEE’s website that could be implemented by EN,
• Attending EN’s meetings, taking photos, capturing video.

Please note that only IEEE members with renewed membership state (either student or professional) for 2016 will be eligible to participate in the EXCOM’s elections, thus I need you to send together with your CV also your membership renewal to IEEE.

I would like to remind you here about the EN membership, which has a cost of €10 per year.

This network provides its members with the opportunity to network with other entrepreneurs / future entrepreneurs on a national level. In addition, members have access to information on entrepreneur members’ goals, pursuits, activities and contact details. Finally, they benefit from discounts or free entrance / participation to IEEE Cyprus EN events.

IEEE Cyprus Entrepreneurs Network (EN) was established in January 2013 and is a volunteer effort that aims to trigger entrepreneurship in Cyprus and help people interested in it to get networked and find valuable team members in order to create technological start-ups. More specifically it intends to bring together IEEE members and other professionals (non-members who are working or who are educated in an IEEE designated field – which are all fields of Engineering, Computer Sciences and Information Technology, Physical Sciences, Biological and Medical Sciences, Mathematics, Technical Communications, Education, Management, Law and Policy) in order to cooperate with electrical or electronic engineers in Cyprus and abroad, so that they come up with an innovative product or service that can be exploited commercially.

Presentation of IEEE Cyprus Entrepreneurs Network (EN)’s main objectives

The IEEE Cyprus Entrepreneurs Network (EN)’s main objectives are the following:

1. Networking between IEEE members and other professionals (non-members working in an IEEE designated field) in Cyprus who are interested in entrepreneurship, from which possible cooperation and startups may come up. Regular meetings take place in the presence of the Entrepreneurs Network Executive Committee (Chair, Vice Chairperson, Secretary and Program Director) and any other IEEE members or non-members concerned in the Network’s goals and interests.
2. Triggering of entrepreneurship in IEEE designated fields in Cyprus, especially within the current financial crisis which increases unemployment. Professionals who by education or experience give evidence of competence in an IEEE designated field (Engineering, Computer Sciences and Information Technology, Physical Sciences, Biological and Medical Sciences, Mathematics, Technical Communications, Education, Management, Law and Policy) are encouraged to participate in the Entrepreneurs Network, cooperate with electrical / computer engineers in Cyprus in order to come up with an innovative product / service that can be exploited commercially, and join IEEE.
3. Arrangement of talks, oriented to the target group of IEEE Cyprus EN, being delivered by entrepreneurship related experts, such as accountants, lawyers, angels, local SBA representatives, bankers, experts in Business Finance, marketing professionals, insurance experts, and industry leaders.
4. Organisation of workshops or days of training, in such topics as financing alternatives, protecting intellectual property, selling our business plan, project management and personal leadership style for success. Additional ideas for the workshops are welcome and can be discussed via our presence in the web or during our meetings.
5. Support of entrepreneurs / future entrepreneurs and helping them both to meliorate their business plans and get in touch with angels and investors.
6. Holding TechMatch event. TechMatch is a tool that helps member entrepreneurs conduct self-evaluations on their business plans, submit their business plans for review by other experienced entrepreneur members and to visibility by potential investors. As the IEEE Cyprus Entrepreneurs Network we are going to support entrepreneurs who will have participated in the TechMatch event by assigning mentors, connecting the entrepreneur with local resources for further help, selecting the best plans in a competition and giving awards or advertising the plans in operating unit publications. TechMatch tool can be used only by IEEE members, so in order to organise such an event we need to have significant interest by IEEE members in Cyprus and abroad, who can of course cooperate with non-IEEE members coming from the fields mentioned above and develop a mutual business plan.
7. The goal of TechMatch is to support entrepreneur members in moving toward success and that is what the Entrepreneurs Network Executive Committee (EN’s EXCOM) will undertake. After the actual TechMatch event is over we will provide ongoing support to entrepreneurs who have expressed interest. This could be in the form of assigned mentors for those entrepreneurs that express interest. The lead of the Review team together with EN’s EXCOM will take the responsibility for any handoff or continuity of support as expressed by the entrepreneur and assure there is direct communication with each entrepreneur according to their needs and expectations for their further development.

New volunteers and new ideas are always welcome!
