Ennovation is a yearly University Competition on Entrepreneurship and Innovation with 4 months duration. The competition runs by a network of 20+ universities in Greece and Cyprus under the coordination of Athens Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (ACEin) of the Athens University of Economics & Business.
The main objective of Ennovation is to accelerate innovative “University Born” ideas by providing the participants with the knowledge, skill set, tools and the confidence required in order to turn them into action. Ennovation puts significant effort in supporting students pursuing either undergraduate studies and executive master’s or doctoral degrees and researchers who wish to turn their innovative entrepreneurial ideas or scientific research results into a sustainable business.
