1. How did TEDxBinnenhof | Ideas from Europe inspire your mission and/or event?

The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Nicosia has for the past 1 – 1 ½ years working towards showcasing the Netherlands as a frontrunner in innovative entrepreneurship. In this context, we saw TEDxBinnenhof | Ideas from Europe as an opportunity on which we could build an event moving in that direction.

  1. What will your event look like?

We will be organising a panel discussion in the light of the general theme of TEDxBinnenhof 2016, which is innovative entrepreneurship. The event will kick off with the projection of a series of recordings from TEDxBinnenhof 2016. Then it will be our panelists’ turn, followed by a discussion and later on a networking reception.

We have opted for a small, but heterogeneous panel that will consist of a government representative, the CEO of a start-up currently participating in the World Startup Factory programme in The Hague, as well as an academic and director of a local accelerator to moderate the discussion.

  1. Who will be attending your event?

Our event is geared towards local stakeholders, its objective being to provide for networking opportunities and a platform for building partnerships between policy-makers, the private sector and academia. These Cypriot stakeholders have one thing in common: their role is key in fostering an entrepreneurial/start-up eco-system in Cyprus.

  1. What do you hope to achieve by organizing this event?

Our aim is to bring together local stakeholders from government as well as the business, entrepreneurship and start-up milieu in Cyprus, promoting at the same time innovative entrepreneurship and the Netherlands/The Hague as a hub therein.
