Common Entrepreneurial Goals & Startup Weekend

Dear friends,

A few months ago I created a shared spreadsheet in Google Drive, named “Common Entrepreneurial Goals” in which each of you can enter his educational background, professional experience and entrepreneurial ideas / fields of interest as well as some contact information. The purpose of this shared file is to enhance our networking possibilities and to create working groups for those members who have common entrepreneurial ideas and goals. The link of the file is: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AuPzDdY3VKzRdDV3M19wYUhHckJ4XzlBNGx1ekJZT3c&usp=drive_web#gid=0.

I call once again all of you to get involved in this effort as well as to send me 1-3 projects that you would like to participate in or lead in order to try to find people interested in joining your team.

I also call those interested in participating in Startup Weekend (6-8/12 http://cyprus.startupweekend.org/) to send me a message so that we can try to form teams and prepare them to take part into this big entrepreneurial event. Maria Christou (cy.linkedin.com/pub/maria-christou/50/4a3/289) and I (http://www.linkedin.com/in/anastasiageorgouli) are also taking part in this event and we are looking for more people for our team!
