The Cyprus Entrepreneurship Competition challenges scientists, startup founders, and entrepreneurs to transform their ideas into real business opportunities. Organised by the University of Cyprus Centre for Entrepreneurship, CyEC connects people with opportunities and helps teams build out their ideas with the support of industry experts and experienced entrepreneurs.

The Competition’s objective is to develop start-ventures or social enterprises that create competitive advantage and innovation. CyEC invites business plans for innovative technologies, processes, business models, or other innovations.
