Endeavor Greece’s New Initiative to Attract Talents for Greek Start-ups

February 26, 2021

ATHENS – Endeavor Greece announced the launching of a new initiative aimed at Greeks and non-Greeks abroad, who are interested in contributing their experience to the transformation of the Greek market. At WorkInTech.gr one can express interest in working in Greek technology companies. By filling out a short form, anyone interested can add their profile to a register of international talent and this will be forwarded to recruiters across the country.

WorkInTech, according to the announcement, is added to a Greek comprehensive strategy that seeks to attract competent, specialised executives and fight the brain drain phenomenon. More specifically, last November, the Greek government announced a 50 pct reduction in income tax for "digital migrants" for the first seven years, if they choose to return to Greece in 2021. Corresponding tax incentives were announced for investors who decide to transfer their tax residence to Greece. At the same time, the Greek government is considering increasing tax-deductions on research spending. Therefore, the establishment of this register, which will gather executives from all over the world who wish to come to Greece, comes at the right time for the rapidly growing startups of the country.

"Endeavor Greece undertakes to mobilise all the key players that will participate in the development of the technology and innovation ecosystem of the country, changing the narrative of entrepreneurship," Panagiotis Karambinis, General Manager of Endeavor Greece said and added: "Only in 2020, more 70,000 people visited our platforms in order to listen to the stories of our entrepreneurs and be inspired by their impressive course and success. More than half of them are executives from abroad, who through the actions of Endeavor keep in touch with the Greek network and its news."

The goal of WorkinTech is to provide an opportunity to anyone who so wishes, to work in some of the most innovative technology companies in Greece and thus take part in the transformation of the Greek ecosystem. By filling out a simple form, any talented person, whether they are Greek or not, resident in Greece or abroad, can now take the next step in their career in Greece.
