Cypriot Young Professionals (CYP) Hear Pelekanos’ Bareburger Tale

The Cypriot Young Professionals (CYP) of the CYPRUS-U.S. Chamber of Commerce recently hosted their 3rd Leadership Dinner with Bareburger co-founder and Chief Operating Officer, Jimmy Pelekanos.

The intimate, sold out event included about 20 CYP members and three Chamber executives. Pelekanos shared his entrepreneurial story of Bareburgers’ beginning – an unlikely venture born between friends and family, at the start of the recession – and frank advice including, “Leave your ego at the door.”

Today, Bareburger boasts over 20 locations, with restaurants opening everywhere from Santa Monica to Tokyo in the coming year.

CYP’s Leadership Dinner series are one of the Chambers core initiatives and functions as an opportunity to bring together Cypriot leaders and young professionals for an exchange of ideas, experiences and key learnings.

Presented as a forum for inspiring entrepreneurs and established professionals, more information is available at www.cyprususchamber.com.
