Volunteering for IEEE Cyprus Entrepreneurs Network (EN)

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.

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

Some of the responsibilities that a 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 it’s 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

Moreover, every January the elections for EN’s Executive Committee take place. The Executive Committee (EXCOM) of EN consists of its Chair, Vice Chairperson, Secretary and Program Director. In order for someone to be eligible for applying for a position in EN’s EXCOM he / she needs to be a member of IEEE.To see how you can join IEEE and the consequent benefits, click here: http://bit.ly/1pGPVS9.
