London, 2 June 2014 – After being named National EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2013, Upstream CEO Marco Veremis will be a candidate for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year Award in Monte Carlo on 4-8 June. For the 14th year, over 60 of the world’s entrepreneurs will celebrate the energy and ideas they bring to advance world’s economies and generate positive change.
“ The EY award encourages entrepreneurial activity and recognizes leaders and visionaries who demonstrate innovation, financial success and personal commitment as they create world-class businesses. In the case of Upstream, this award should be seen under the scope of the rapid growth of technology entrepreneurship in the country the last 2 years. We have seen a great number of new businesses. It’s a business model that didn’t exist in Greece, doesn’t require extensive capital and is based on individuals with special skills – mainly engineers and developers. Technology is one of the areas that can truly contribute to a healthy growth. It is important that a technology company, like Upstream, was recognized in this way.” said Marco Veremis, Upstream CEO.
