Feb 26, 2019

On Wednesday, 13 February 2019, the third meetup was organized in the Business Incubator Novi Sad within the GROW Pilot Project.

GROW Pilot Project is a part of the Project “Developing accelerators to provide better access to innovation finance for SMEs – ACCELERATOR”, implemented by the Development Agency of Serbia in cooperation with the Business Incubator Novi Sad within the Danube Transnational Program.

The main guest of the third meetup was Grigoris Chatzikostas, the Development Director in the company BioSense. He shared his experiences and an interesting development road with the audience.

Grigoris Chatzikostas is an expert in several fields, the most important of which is product development. He comes from Thessaloniki, Greece, where he spent his childhood and early youth. Later, work and life led him throughout Europe, and he came to Novi Sad for two reasons - work and family.

Grigoris shared his interesting professional stories with the audience and presented what it is like to work as a Product Developer, what it includes and what challenges it brings.

Part of the conversation with the guest was dedicated to BioSense when the audience had the opportunity to hear how this institution works and what it is like when private capital and EU funds are joining together to create a completely new value.

At the end, Grigoris noted that it was very difficult to build his story, but that it is much easier when you have a community of people with the same problems which talks about them openly. With this, he encouraged Novi Sad's entrepreneurial community to continue with regular gatherings and continue to support individuals who want to try something new.
