About Business Clinic events

Members of Impact Hub Athens, each with their entrepreneurial initiatives, share a specific, yet pivotal challenge with the rest of the community and a diverse group of experts from the realms of business design and modeling, strategic development, marketing and communications, intellectual property, legal affairs, and more.

Following the initial presentation, the experts divide into three groups – innovation sessions, one for each invitation. For the next approximately 60 minutes, they engage in questions, exploration, and collective brainstorming, with the purpose of arriving at viable proposals and determining the next steps.
