It targets an audience eager to start a business and it provides with simple advice and insight from entrepreneurs.

A lot has been written and said about the Greek crisis, about a new model of entrepreneurship that is being developed, about alternative financing methods, but this is the first time a series of mini docs is created that presents these subjects though chapters (Financing, The Role of Government, Anchor Institutions) in a comprehensive way, through interviews from academics and entrepreneurs and by using an extremely to the point visual material. Probably the reason for that is its initial educational purpose.

This video is a partnership between the US Embassy in Greece and the ALBA Graduate Bussiness School, created by the creative duo Colored Pencils (Araceli Lemou and Konstantinos Antonopoulos). The purpose was to serve as an educational tool for a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on the Coursera platform, that was designed for the first time to offer content designed for a Greek audience. It targets greek audience that wants to start a business and find financing and it provides with simple advice and insight from entrepreneurs.
