First Presentation of Sentim Project in Larissa, Greece
On 20/09/2015 the Institute of Entrepreneurship Development(IED) organized an internal meetup of the people that are closely related with the organization, employees/researchers/workers/volunteers.
The subject of the meeting was the presentation of the project Sentim.
Panagiotis Koutoudis (Project Manager of IED) introduced the subject and the activities of the project to his peers. That triggered a group discussion about the unemployment that is especially highlighted in immigrant population and how entrepreneurship could be an alternative solution for them.
Some of the participants referred to similar actions that are implemented in Greece and abroad. They distinguished the innovative factor of the activities of Sentim project and they exchange opinions about the best ways to implement these activities. Under these scope, a lot of productive ideas came up. Finally, the team focused on the actions that IED will implement during the upcoming years.
As a result, people got a clear view about Sentim project in order to be involved in the future. Moreover, they became ambassadors of the project and from this day they will be able to present Sentim project in other occasions.
