For the first time, a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on the Coursera platform will be enhanced with content designed for a Greek audience. The course is free of charge and open to everyone, and will include a series of interesting interviews and discussions with entrepreneurs from different parts of the world, funders, and business experts. From April 28 through June 9, 2014 participants will get simple, practical advice and information on how to start a business and identify funding sources in a tough economic environment.

As Greek participants, you will be invited to join meet-ups in four different cities in Greece – an opportunity to discuss the topics of the course, ask questions about material you don’t understand, share ideas and find out how to make your business (or business plan!) stronger.
