About Disrupt Greece


FortuneGreece, the leader in business news, Industry Disruptors-Game Changers (ID-GC), the organization that promotes innovation, entrepreneurship and extraversion with an emphasis on startups and Papastratos, the largest tobacco products company in Greece, launch for second time the Disrupt Greece platform.

Our aim is to map and strengthen the Greek startup ecosystem and also to highlight a growth model that can become the ideal «role model» for the Greek economy.

We focus on the new technologies, innovation, talent and flexibility that characterize Greek startups – companies that can disrupt, thereby leading to the desirable restart.

We also explore the future of work. How technologies like automation, robotics, and artificial intelligence are shaping how we work, where we work, and the skills we need to work.

Disrupt Greece not only provides a tribune for new companies to «speak» about their ideas, products and services, but also strengthens their efforts by guiding young entrepreneurs, offering them valuable tools, and putting them in touch with experienced partners and mentors who will contribute to their development.

Furthermore, it paves the way for the participation of the entrepreneurs to international events and their access to a special business audience, secured by the presence of Fortune and ID-GC.
