HEA is not just a monetary award but a web of support. It was launched by the Libra Group on behalf of The Hellenic Initiative (THI) in 2012 and every year rewards young entrepreneurs with fresh ideas.
This year, winners will receive up to 1,250,000 euros in funding, mentorship, legal advice and business support services by HEA and its network of sponsors and partners.
