The Stelios Philanthropic Foundation has announced the sixth competition for entrepreneurs – the Stelios Award for Business Cooperation in Cyprus – with a view to promote island-wide, bi-communal business cooperation between Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot entrepreneurs by giving promising ventures the funding boost they need to grow.
Up to ten awards of €10,000 each are presented to those teams which best demonstrate bi-cultural teamwork and mutual trust at an annual event in Cyprus organized by the Stelios Philanthropic Foundation, according to a press release issued by the Foundation.
The awards will be given out in mid October in Nicosia by Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou.
Since 2009, more than €1,200.00 has been awarded to partnerships which have proven that bicommunal cooperation can yield results.
The deadline for applications expires on 15 September.
