HACC with HIN and MITEF Present PERGA Greece 2.0, May 26

NEW YORK – Until recently, Foreign Direct Investment in Greece focused primarily on real estate, tourism, logistics, and renewable energy. Over the past few years, interest has also increased in other areas such as technology, from artificial intelligence and computer science to chip design and digital health.

It is all thanks to several global technology companies who have selected Greece to set up shop. Such companies include Pfizer, Orfium, Ansys, and many others.

Join the Hellenic-American Chamber of Commerce with the Hellenic Innovation Network and MIT Enterprise Forum Greece in a discussion on Wednesday, May 26, 12 PM EDT, via Zoom, to hear what attracted these companies to Greece, their experiences so far, and their plans for the future.

John Metaxas, Anchor WCBS News will serve as the moderator for the event.

The speakers include Consul General of Greece in New York Dr. Konstantinos Koutras; Nico Gariboldi, Site Lead – Global Digital and Technology HUB, Senior Director at Pfizer; Marina Hatsopoulos, Chairwoman at the Hellenic Innovation Network, entrepreneur, investor, and author; Yorgos Koutsoyannopoulos, Vice President of Engineering at ANSYS; and Drew Delis, Co-Founder COO at Orfium.
