Our most important short-term goal is to contribute to the entrepreneurial ecosystem in a wide range from mentoring, support for techno-startups with the potential to expand abroad, to early-stage investment and strategic consultancy, and to double the number of our active portfolio companies every year, through our close collaborations with universities.”

Aegean Ventures aims to breathe new life into the entrepreneurship ecosystem with the consultancy and network supports it offers and to become one of the important players in the ecosystem within 5 years.
